Valve Remains Bullish on Linux

Gabe Newell gave a keynote address at LinuxCon in New Orleans, where the Valve managing director was highly critical of Windows while reiterating Valve's support for Linux as a gaming platform, reports Ars Technica. He says there will be a tangible demonstration of this soon: "Next week we're going to be rolling out more information about how we get there and what are the hardware opportunities we see for bringing Linux into the living room." Valve confirmed plans for a Linux Steam client last year and not long after Newell famously labeled Windows 8 a "catastrophe." He also predicts a PC hardware shakeup. "I think we'll see either significant restructuring or market exits by top five PC players. It's looking pretty grim," he said. "Systems which are innovation-friendly and embrace openness are going to have a greater competitive advantage to closed or tightly regulated systems."
