Valve's big countdown event is still going on, but the first of three reveals is... revealed: SteamOS GabeN has been incredibly disapproving of Win8 as a gaming platform and it looks like he's taking the fight to Microsoft. The Source engine has already been ported to Linux, Valve is making major contributions to Linux video drivers and the announcement states that several other triple-a titles will natevely run on Linux next year. The next reveal is almost guaranteed to be their SteamBox, a PC-console hybrid for the livingroom that Valve has been hinting at for some time and will run SteamOS. The third reveal is still anyone's guess. Gaming is pretty much the last reason I use Windows at home at all. Could Valve have enough muscle to finally break Linux's chicken-and-egg problem?
