Steam Linux and Future of Gaming

Posted 07-27-2012 at 11:24 AM by kbscores

It is becoming apparent that Microsoft wants to dominate the gaming market or rather every technology market. With rumors surfacing about the new digital key requirements in Windows 8 , doors have began to open for Linux. Take for instance Steam. The mobile client for steam comes on two types of systems iphones and droids. What’s missing? The Windows 7 phone apparently had the opportunity to have the steam client, but refused it in order to promote their games through “Games for Windows”. The current state of PC gaming is hanging in the balance with the new OS. Windows has been the preferred choice for operating systems. If they require keys or fees to be able to create applications we will see more and more application disappear on Windows and appear on MAC and Linux. For example, Linux is getting Steam. Are the mobile phones foreshadowing the future of applications on Windows?
Perhaps….As different Linux distributions become more user-friendly more people will flock to the free OS.

    oh rly? those are just market rumors again. i hear this like 10 years. nobody cares about linux and that's an undoubtable fact. windows will never die, and that's a fact too. a sad fact though.i hate both win and steam, it's unbelievable mess of many types of shoots all-in-one-place. or somebody still seriously expect them to care? welcome to the real world! wake up and sing!
    i used steam for like 2 years and every damn time i boot into windows to play it just hangs, fails, and does all sorts of crops before, actually, will get to work after hour or two, by that time i already stop wanting to play anything. nobody will ever care for any bugs on linux as they don't for windblows.
