=============================================================== From: Wil Wade ------------------------------------------------------ Just a note for those who have not read the other news stories about this, but it is a bit more than a Distro. Steam has been working with hardware as well as the software. Also this is announcement 1 of 3 from Valve on Linux with the others coming...

=============================================================== From: trevor noblitt ------------------------------------------------------ They actually talked about the hardware a little today. Pretty interesting. They have been pushing linux for a while now but it's nice to see them put money where their mouth is. http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamMachines/ P.S I am very disappointed that they didn't call it a Gabecube.

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Valve is really the only game company worth supporting anymore. Blizzard screwed up with Diablo 3, EA is....EA. Nearly every other original game company has been bought out, most of the titles I like are dead or delayed.

=============================================================== From: Aaron welch ------------------------------------------------------ And Valve (via Steam) supports more independent game developers than ANY other platform. Gabe Newell is an amazing developer, but he is even better as a visionary for what gaming will be in the next 10 years. -AW

=============================================================== From: Chad Smith ------------------------------------------------------ Yeah, I think he pretty much gave up the whole "developer" bit years ago. *- Chad W. Smith*

=============================================================== From: "Alex Smith (K4RNT)" ------------------------------------------------------ Agreed, Steven. R.I.P. Sierra On-Line and Dynamix On Wed, Sep 25, 2013 at 8:59 PM, Stephen Kraus wrot= e: d. ote: he tty e be ?!

=============================================================== From: wes ------------------------------------------------------ I agree, he has accomplished great things considering his disability. (the one where he can't say the number 3) http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr

=============================================================== From: Chad Smith ------------------------------------------------------ Seriously, when was the last time Valve actually produced a game? *- Chad W. Smith*

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Portal 2? Even then, they just hired the team behind the concept out of college
