For those who may not know Linus Torvalds is the father of LINUX.
Linus Torvalds has welcomed the arrival of Valve’s Linux-based platform, SteamOS, and said it could boost Linux on desktops.
The Linux creator praised Valve’s “vision” and suggested its momentum would force other manufacturers to take Linux seriously – especially if game developers start to ditch Windows.
“I love the Steam announcements – I think that’s an opportunity to really help the desktop,” he said, speaking at LinuxCon in Edinburgh.
Valve announced SteamOS last month as a way to bring PC gaming to the living room. Users will be able to install the system on PCs they build themselves, and Valve will make the system available to manufacturers to use on their own hardware.
