No one is gonna fucking switch to Linux of all things. I never pegged Newell as being that retarded, but I guess I was wrong.

Quite frankly, a native linux client doesn't do them a shit's worth of good, because what are they going to do? Port 3000 games to Linux all by themselves? I'll look forward to seeing Steamux in 2261 then.

I would guess that they are looking into using a linux distro to create/emulate a functional Windows environment in which their games will run properly. No idea how feasible that is, but I think it's smart of them to try to figure something out before Microsoft completely fucks up Windows beyond hope and suddenly Steam is left standing with a non-functional OS requirement.

Can they make it work? I have no idea. But they're definitely smart for looking into their options.
