My thoughts on Steam coming to Linux? About fucking time!
My thoughts on Steam being exclusive to Ubuntu for the time being? Come on, man! There’s Linux beyond Ubuntu, you know?!
Sure… Ubuntu is still the one Linux based OS with the highest user base and I also can’t argue it has been part of the driving force for mainstream “Linux-awareness”. I know… But come on, man! I’m really dying to get my hands on a “distro free” Steam client, you know, like Linux veteran digital distribution service Desura?
Speaking of Desura, some people are claiming that with Steam coming to Linux, Desura will pretty much die or be absorbed by Valve… Somehow I don’t think it’s going to be the case. You see, Steam holds the largest share of digital games distribution in Windows, while Desura holds the Linux market almost exclusively. sure Steam will drain some customers from Desura, but competition is always good, both to the end user and the companies themselves. Friendly competition may just be the kickstart of a new age in the OSS side of the OS market, the Tux Gaming Age!
Don’t agree? Think I missed a few interesting points? Let us know in the comments.
