Now I know Valve has denied having a Linux version of their game platform (Steam) in the works, but a lot of bloggers are skeptical, and with good reason. On Steam’s website there’s a job offer. They’re looking for a Lead Software Engineer, and amongst the responsibilities listed, I spotted:
Manage the operation of large clusters of machines running both Windows and Linux in a highly available system.
Port Windows-based games to the Linux platform.
You can’t argue with that folks. If you don’t believe me, check it out for yourself.
