Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may remember, a while ago, Valve has facilitated all the Debian developers to have free access to all their Steam games. Now, the official Ubuntu developers benefit from the same treatment.
For more information, see the mailing lists.
For those who don’t know yet, Valve, now a member of The Linux Foundation, has initiated some ambitions projects: the SteamOS, a Linux operating system optimized for gaming, the Steam Machine, a gaming colsole that will run with SteamOS, a Debian based Linux gaming system and the Steam Controller, a game controller specially designed for SteamOS and the Steam Machine. A demo video of the Steam Controller can be found here.
Also, they will release a music streaming service, called Steam Music, that will enable the users to listed to music while playing.
