Valve engineer Drew Bliss has given a short talk to ubuntu developers present at the Ubuntu Summit in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Revealing little in way of time schedules or release dates, instead referring to ï¿½Valve timeï¿½ ï¿½ a ï¿½release when itï¿½s ready approachï¿½ ï¿½ Bliss did have one trick up his sleeve for attendees of the summit: guaranteed access to the forthcoming beta.
Why Steam for Linux?
Bliss opened his talk with a background on the history and motivation behind Valve and Steam, explaining how the company went from games publisher to maintainers of a ï¿½complete content serviceï¿½ in Steam.
But why Linux, and why now?
Citing the ï¿½closing ecosystemsï¿½ of Mac and Windows as being part of their decision to target Linux, Bliss admitted there was ï¿½self-interestï¿½ involved. But he stressed that there was ï¿½no ployï¿½ to ï¿½takeoverï¿½ Linux.
ï¿½Open platforms allowed Steam to exist. If we tried today it probably wouldnï¿½t be possible,ï¿½ he explained, calling Linux a ï¿½viable, alternative platformï¿½ that they were keen to support.
ï¿½We chose Ubuntu to start because of its broad user-base, strong community, and a strong company backing it in Canonical. Ubuntu was a simple choice to make.ï¿½
No time frame was given for either the limited beta release or the following ï¿½generalï¿½ one, but Bliss did say that users ï¿½wonï¿½t have to wait until 2013′ to get hold of them.
Beta access was given as a gift to all attendees of UDS with an e-mail address in Launchpad.
Asked whether Steam for Linux would bring DRM/Copy Protection with it Bliss confirmed that no ï¿½industrial strengthï¿½ protection would be required by them, though developers were free to choose to use copy-protection should they wish.
Kalau kelak Ubuntu sudah lancar memainkan game-game berat macam Half Life 2, itu tandanya performa Ubuntu akan membaik dan makin bagus buat kita.
HOT kayak tritnya Nexus aja
