| TrackMania United Forever / TrackMania Nations 
| Forever dedicated server for Linux.


OpenGL and 2011 as the year of Linux â Will it be because of the Apple/Valve romance?

,----[ Quote ]
| Itâs not going to happen overnight, games 
| developers will need to become comfortable 
| developing cross-platform titles for release 
| on PC and Mac, and they will have to gain 
| confidence in the ability of both OpenGL to 
| keep up with GPU development, and of Unix GPU 
| drivers to attain the same quality as their 
| windows counterparts, but if by the end of 
| 2010 we have at least a couple of AAA titles 
| released as native Linux versions, such as 
| IDâs Rage, then other developers may look to 
| follow their lead in 2011.



Valve Looking For Mac And Linux Engineers

,----[ Quote ]
| A Linkedin profile from Valve Software's Chris
| Green reveals that the company is apparently
| "REALLY looking for senior Linux + Mac
| engineers." As of yet there has been no
| official announcement of any upcoming Mac
| related projects. Valve is known for its Half-
| Life series as well as its Steam digital
| download service.


Valve might need a few Macintosh and Linux engineers

,----[ Quote ]
| It seems as if Half-Life and Left 4 Dead
| developer Valve is looking for a few good men
| to engineer things for Linux and Macintosh.
| Several sleuth sites, as well as more than a
| share of Mac-focused sites, have been
| reporting on a rogue sentence not-so-tucked-
| away in Valve's Chris Green's LinkedIn
| profile, indicating that the studio is indeed
| doing as much.


Valve To Launch Native Linux Game In July?

,----[ Quote ]
| Dyson is set to launch in Steam on the 31st of July. Will we see native Linux
| support at this time for Dyson? Will a Steam Linux client launch in tandem at
| that time? On the Steam web-site it's stating that Linux is one of the
| supported operating systems... We shall wait and see. Postal III is also
| still on track to launch this year, which uses Valve's game engine, and it
| too is set to officially offer Linux client support.


Valve boss lets off steam about DRM

,----[ Quote ]
| PRESIDENT OF VALVE SOFTWARE Gabe Newell has said that he thinks the DRM on
| computer games is "just dumb".


Steam Client For Linux Confirmed: Linux Libraries Appear In Left 4 Dead Demo

,----[ Quote ]
| Earlier this year we shared that Valve's Source Engine is coming to Linux
| after receiving some information that pointed in this direction. In addition,
| a year ago Valve Software was publicly looking for a senior software engineer
| to port Windows-based games to Linux platform. There have long been rumors
| and hopes among Linux users that Steam games would become natively available
| for Linux, but we have additional confirmation that Valve Software has ported
| their Steam game client to Linux. In Valve's most recent title, Left 4 Dead,
| there are shared Linux libraries shipping alongside this Windows game client.


Google To Acquire Valve??? News

,----[ Quote ]
| According to The Inquirer and 'well placed sources', Google is on the verge
| of acquiring Half-Life and Left 4 Dead developers, Valve Software, with an
| potential announcement at this week's Game Developers Conference in Austin,
| Texas.
| Google's main interest in the firm apparently rests with Valve's Steam
| content distribution system, which has become increasing popular with
| publishers in the last couple of years as a way to digitally distribute their
| titles. So far, the likes of 2K Games, Eidos, and Activision have all signed
| up to Steam, alongside indie studios such as Introversion (Darwinia) and
| Media Molecule (Rag Doll Kung Fu).


Valve's Source Engine Coming To Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| There have been rumors since last year that Valve may be serious about
| porting Source games to Linux after Valve Software began seeking a senior
| software engineer with the responsibility of porting Windows-based games to
| the Linux platform. Valve Software has yet to officially announce Linux
| clients for any of its software, but at Phoronix we have received information
| confirming that Valve is indeed porting its very popular Source engine to the
| Linux platform.


id Software Starts Work On Doom 4!

,----[ Quote ]
| In addition to the good news we broke this morning that Valve is porting the
| Source engine to Linux, id Software has announced today that they have begun
| work on Doom 4!



Id Software and Valve violating GPLs!

,----[ Quote ]
| I just wanted to post it here because I thought people should know that iD
| and Valve are together taking advantage of other peoples work without even
| giving them credit.
