Re: Valve has some questions for you
Steam came installed on a Dell laptop I was given a few years ago and played Portal on it - liked the game, though having to use the Win partition seems just silly to me.
When I went to the link you supplied I just ended up at the Steam homepage, so if you have a better link ...
I liked your answer to the first question and my response would be very close to it.
For the second, simply port the engine to linux. I realize there would have to be some way to use a registration code or some payment methodology to unlock each game - that to me seems the biggest hurdle. I love linux and, in the past, have been an avid pc gamer. Not so much now that the box and laptop I run primarily boot to Mepis. Yeah its an ideological choice and yeah I don't play games as often. I know I am part of an untapped market and await the coming of our open source gaming overlords.
I like Steam's approach to pc gaming and hope something can be worked out
