    Ah okay... so it's a kernel not a "platform" like Steam or alike. Already though...

    Yeah we're only the kernel (and some system code) but we're working with Dream Linux to make a Linux that works with Atom cpu netbooks:

    Hak5.org

    But we want to make a Linux specifically for gaming also.

    I'm a little scared to download that... looks like warez or something. Can't screw up my devel rig to test!

    What are those supposed to be?

    It's used to run a source server on Linux. It just provides the means to download the files needed ( including the server binaries ). No client in there... it's sort of the client for the server
