20. Re: Steam for Linux Beta Opens Dec 20, 2012, 14:03 Beelzebud
 
They do it already. Anyone making Playstation 3 games or Nintendo games (or even phone games) are using OpenGL already, and as people have pointed out, porting from DX to OGL isn't even the hardest part of porting, it's actually dealing with the sound layer.

The biggest roadblock to porting a game to Linux is if it's like UT3, and relies on some expensive library that the owners won't allow to be redistributed.
