I am sure loads of linux-games dream of having STEAM for linux. its one thing to build peoples hopes up only to have them let down. Its completely different to insist its all good "see see I told you, people didn't believe me". News Flash alot changes in a year. In under a year DNF was cancelled, sold, terminated and relaunched. Anyone making a statement speculating what would happen to DNF would have hit the nail on the head last year simply because a year is a long time....
Holding onto one statement for over a year when soo much has change is just desparate.
Also it has already been confirmed by GaryMod it was serverCode (he even laughed that people actually think there is HL2 for linux).
Also the changes that has occured is todo with PS3 & Portal3 release
