    This, this is good news. Whilst the platform is obviously unproven, with native support from the engine, it won't be particularly costly to port a game over. The more engines that have native Linux support the better.

    Steam OS obviously needs something big to really get some momentum. HL3 available on Steam OS, a few months before coming to windows would probably do it.

    It's already "doing it". We've seen more developments in linux gaming in the past few months than at any time since the release of OpenGL.

    The revolution against closed source gaming has begun. Viva la Gabe!
