Hello Linux Geeksters.  Asked about Valve’s SteamOS, this is what Linus Torvalds, the Linux godfather said at LinuxCon:

Valve’s Steam for Linux is the best opportunity to help the Linux desktop, he said. They’ll do this by setting a standard for Linux distributions that want to enable gaming on their platforms.

It’s the best model for standardization. Standards should not be people sitting in a smoky room… and writing papers. It’s being successful enough to drive the market.
