Valve launches Linux blog
« on: July 17, 2012, 09:16 AM »
Along with their latest promise to actually start porting to Linux, Valve software has created a Linux team and posted it's first Linux blog entry:
The Valve Linux Team

Our mission is to strengthen the gaming scene on Linux, both for players and developers. This includes Linux ports of Steam and Valve games, as well as partner games. We are also investigating open source initiatives that could benefit the community and game developers.

Kudos, gentlemen, kudos.

I aprove this!  :Thmbsup:
As soon as they create a steam client for linux, some of my games (especially the ones from humble bundle) will work right out of the box (hopefully!). By porting the source engine, I guess only 5% wouldn't be available in linux, so this is awesome news.
I also like that they are doing it for ubuntu, since that's the distro I usually go for :)
