Linux Support for Valve?

The fine folks at Phoronix have talked to Gabe Newell from Valve and have in fact confirmed that a Linux port for the Valve client software is indeed in progress and working. The apps that are working appear to be based on the Valve Source engine. While I’m sure that Linux support is great for the small number of Linux users that use their computers to game, I’m going to guess that this is just a cover for an X86/Linux based game console that Valve will be releasing. It makes sense, pack it with some decent hardware, sign in, purchase games over the internet and start playing. The hardware can be refreshed every couple of years and I’m sure with the XBMC port, it could also be used as a digital hub. 

10.7.2 is released!

Just checked the software update tab and the 10.7.2 update is out. Time to kill Apple’s servers.

 

*update*

Their servers are getting hammered. I’ve been downloading over an hour and still have 300MB to go.

But it doesn’t have 4g, or a 4″ screen! When will the tech pundits ever learn? Really, after all these years of Apple product releases they should have this figured out by now. Apple only adds a new feature when it is perfected according to them. Notice how most people don’t seem to care about the lack of a 4g networking or a larger screen? If you need those capabilities, there are many Android phones to choose from.
