This is really bugging you huh?

I wouldn't say Valve did nothing for Linux... They've always had GoldSrc and Source engine servers for Linux. Admittedly I don't know what all that entails but many of the servers I've played on over the past decade have been Linux servers.

If valve has "Linux at heart", and is going to be spoken of as "Linux gods" and compared to the Linux Foundation, I'd like to see them release source code (haha, literally :), and Steam, or parts of it? ) of their software for Linux. (Maybe they will, but that mentioned in an announcement would be more like Linux gods!)

It bothers me, and angers me in fact, as a Linux user/gamer since 1997, the way they have exploded (in words) onto the Linux scene, without yet a single product released for it, they are worth billions of dollars, and words like above about Linux.

All the way back to when Half-Life was released for PC (1997?), based on Quake 2 technology, which ran cleanly on Linux. Part of the work of bringing HL to Linux already done, but no Linux version of it. Instead efforts/energy/resources into Steam. Not a word about Linux (for 13,15 years).
