Steam Box, Steam for Linux
Valve has made one of its first steps toward a “Steam Box.” Steam for Linux has been released today for Linux’s operating system Ubuntu; complete with a wide range of games for sale. Such as: Half-Life, Counter-Strike Source, and free-to-play Team Fortress 2.
Gabe Newell, Co-founder of Valve has been working toward a Linux-powered computer incorporating the Steam client to be manufactured by Valve and hardware makers.
“Our perception is that one of the big problems holding Linux back is the absence of games.” Said Newell. “I think that a lot of people…don’t realize how critical games are as a consumer driver of purchases and usage.”
