Gaming going to linux...
 
So you all knows Valve has stated an intention to make like a linux based steam box...

The thing about this is, I think Valve has more pull in the PC game industry than anyone else. Valve could single-handedly pull the PC gaming world to linux.

Because everyone runs the OS that their console runs on their desktop...

[QUOTE=pyramid;25124054]Because everyone runs the OS that their console runs on their desktop...[/QUOTE]And there's no such thing as dual booting...or acquiring an OS you don't have for free.

Although it should be good for the availability of games on linux.

I don't understand

What does this have to do with Apple and the awesome sauce of everything Apple?

its significant because it would make linux a major gaming platform and every future game would support it

Ultimately at some point getting rid of the need for windows for gamers...

Steam for linux, not new news, and neither is a dedicated linux box of any sort, lol. I'm a linux guy and hate windows, but even I can see you're trying to start shit. You are such an apple fan-faggot that you'll say anything to cut windows down and push apple products. You don't "NEED" windows for gaming anyways.

Yeah, and Linux gaming was going to take off when id released Quake 3 for Linux back in '99, too. I think that and Heavy Gear 2 were the only noticed Linux games that came from that particular revolution.

I still have the tin box Linux Q3 in my closet somewhere. I wonder if it's worth anything...

I've been gaming on linux for forever anyways. Warzone 2100 is still awesome.

Difference between Quake 3 and Steam on linux is that, Quake 3 is one game, Steam is one of the major PC game distribution platforms...

I know its not new, I wanted to see what everyone thought of this possibility.

Jeez, don't be so suspicious of me :rolleyes:

I am actually an OSX and Ubuntu fanboy.
