    Lightbulb Valve: Linux Better Than Windows 8 for Gaming [Slashdot]



    dartttt writes "In a presentation at Ubuntu Developer Summit currently going on in Denmark, Drew Bliss from Valve said that Linux is more viable than Windows 8 for gaming. Windows 8 ships with its own app store and it is not an open platform anymore and Linux has everything they need: good OpenGL, pulseaudio, OpenAL and input support."

    That's one way to stir up interest and gain exposure for the steam linux beta, I guess.
    Steam works just fine on Windows 8.

    Go Linux!

    If Microsoft continues there trend, buying software will only be primarily from there store, this would be a game over for Valve.
