    Nice.

    I hope a lot of 3rd party developers will jump the bandwagon too.
    I also hope Valve will smart up and provide support for integrated Wine for games that aren't Linux native yet.

    It's going to take a while though. Valve had to convert everything to the Mac's shitty OpenGL implementation to make it work on their platform, and they have to convert a lot of code for Linux too, even though XOrg has way better OpenGL integration.

    Gaben is hiring a lot of Linux talent away from other companies (don't worry, only boring stuff like AutoCAD).

    What does this all mean? In a while, no more :breakcomp:

    The deb file is 1 MB, so not much weight :tongueout:

    I can't test it yet though, it's useless without beta access.

    Yep, it's a shame I don't have beta access. I am quite pissed off about it, to be honest.
