Then decides to write yet another article that shows he doesn't know Jack about Linux.
Linux has already done the games thing. But if you weren't around back then, or blinked you might have missed Loki's phoenix-like performance flaming out trying to crack the Linux market.
Maybe Valve will succeed where others have failed though. I don't know. Things do seem different with Linux today compared to back then. Like this whole desktop obsession that appears to have grown up over time. Used to be you grabbed a bunch then changed your window manager now and again, as if it was wallpaper. Now people act like you need to pick one, then stick with it.
I am thinking Linux could use another new Window Manager project. Both KDE and Gnome seem to have rode off their rails to me. If enough folks are unhappy with the present crop of choices then someone will make something new.
That is how Linux is supposed to work. Scratch your own itch. Linux doesn't need games because Linux is the game, so run it to win!
I'm an Xbill God BTW
