Op Ed

Ars Technica - Can SteamOS drag the PC game industry over to Linux?
Today, Valve said we should watch for "announcements in the coming weeks about all the AAA titles coming natively to SteamOS in 2014." There is one AAA announcement in particular, though, that would be bigger than all the others combined. It could instantly get millions of gamers to seriously consider making the jump (or at least adding on) a Linux-based OS for their gaming needs. That announcement would be a SteamOS-exclusive version of Half-Life 3 (or, somehow, if another Valve sequel or franchise with HL3-levels of buzz).

Well, if the streaming from your Windows PC option in the SteamOS works well, this could really be big.

I have always said I would ditch Windows on my primary PC if my Steam games could work. Going forward, I hope this is a good sign.
