    Default Looks like Valve needs Linux developers.

    On the ubuntu forums I read the following very interesting question from a valve employe, someone called Gabe Newell (it was the reply to a request to port steam to linux):

    "Do you know any good Linux developers?"

    I am not a programmer myself, but could someone who is please apply for the job via the following email adress:

    gaben@valvesoftware.com

    Anyone?

    OMG Gabe Newell is THE brain behind Valve games.

    Unfortunately I don't live in the US otherwise I would certainly like to try

    If they want you, they would probably be willing to assist with the relocation...

    Is it just me though, or can anyone else see the irony of that response from Valve?

    Successful troll is successful. I wouldn't believe that post and neither should you.

    Try to log in as the user who posted that message. use the password gaben . If that doesn't work, it's probably fake.

    Not the hardest of things to find.

    But seeing as the OP in the ubuntu forums is a new user I wouldn't put any credability behind it. Also if they wanted a linux programmer to port steam/source over I'm sure they could find the right people by themselves.
