Gabe Newell Destroys the World

Fascinating & horrifying word from Steam & Valve Software big cheese Mr Newell who threatened to port Steam’s library to Linux while bashing Windows 8 (& by-proxy Microsoft): http://www.wired.co.uk/podcast/episode-86

A console has not been forthcoming & according to Games won’t be; but have now revealed the tiny wee “Ouya”, the $99 console…

Since Microsoft are (allegedly) making their games more DL-unfriendly; while Valve could single-handedly “encourage” their entire userbase to jump from Windows if they made Half-life 3 (say…) Linux only…

The plot is most likely thickening; but into a satisfying fact-soup or thin rumour-gravy?!
