Do you think Valve decides to commit millions in resources to development on inferior operating systems going nowhere if they could just stick with Windows and not worry about it? Maybe like many other people, they are worried about Windows 8 being a turd.
Since they mostly do stuff thats interesting to them, without much regard to the expense... yes, they may well do that.

Valve could completely stop developing games and live off of steam income for the foreseeable future, and still not have to worry about their income stream.

Due to the sensitivity of my work I can't use google docs nor any other cloud based storage site that would put any kind of work specific data outside of the corporate firewall, It's in my company's corporate policy. Even if I could, I wouldn't trust google with handling any of my work.
And all those concerns are just about the normal cloud stuff like someone accidently sharing. In addition you never know if hackers will steal stuff. Plus that doesn't even count the intentional problems. Companies like MS sometimes put in their TOS that they get unlimited rights to proprietary stuff that goes through their servers (which means they could patent or trademark or copyright stuff just because it was sent in the cloud)
