It appears Gabe Newell was serious about opening Steam for Linux and Nvidia and possibly AMD are jumping on the wagon.

Even Unity is going to do a Linux export. I only wish it( the editor) would run on Linux, but apparently that’s not going to happen any time soon.

Even Unity is going to do a Linux export.

Now Unity can stand for 3 things. A Linux distro, the name of Ubuntu’s new desktop, and now a 3D game engine for Linux :)

Still think Gabe is fighting an uphill battle, but it’s good news for Linux advocates that have been longing for more games. Upgrading from Cube to TF2 will be a nice change.

Ha, I only knew about the Ubuntu desktop. They used to have really weird names for everything, like Gimp, now they are trying to be more normal or whatever.
