    Im more interested in the "ask me anything" Reddit session!

    Does anyone else get the feeling that in the years to come gaming will basically be PS, X-box, and Steam (replacing PC gaming)
    Coz thats what it looks like to me...

    I see Steam Machines primarily as streaming boxes - so in addition to your gaming rig - and therefore there shouldn't be a need to port to Linux.

    They're making progress. I was actually quite surprised to see Metro Last Light available on Linux.
