Valve On Steam Part Two on GamesIndustry.biz is a recent interview about Steam conducted with Valve's Doug Lombardi. Though a recent job posting for Linux engineers spurred speculation that a Linux version of the Steam client is in the works, Doug indicates that at the moment this is not something they are developing, saying: "There's no Linux version that we're working on right now." There's also an interesting follow-up on NPD's digital distribution data, which has already been called into question by Impulse and GamersGate. "Yeah, we're unsure as to how they came up with those numbers, so commenting on them would feel strange. ...," Doug comments. "It does point to what we've been trying to say forever which is that the PC is not dying, the business is just moving elsewhere. And to their credit, they're starting to make strides to give everyone that information and paint a more complete picture. But again those reports that came out weren't based on any data that we've provided, so it is what is. ..." Thanks Ant via Linux Today.
