    EA is moving away from Steam with their Origin online service now.

    Steam is deserved to die if they dont bring in some new innovations.

    A podcast from podcast17 with a Gabe Newell interview.

So we’re always sorta measuring things in terms of trade-offs; so we look at how much time something will take versus how many of our customers it’ll benefit. So for example on Linux, we obviously would like to have a Linux client and we’d like to have our games running on Linux, a lot of our--- I mean our servers run on Linux, so we’ve been supporting Linux since ‘98 in terms of having server support, but whenever we look at that we have to compare that with "Okay, well we can spend that time making the Mac version better, or the Windows version better, or the 360". Recently we started supporting the PS3, and for us that decision was mainly motivated by Sony's willingness to be more open than the console companies have traditionally been around being an internet client. And to us that seemed like something we should really get behind, that sorta tipped us over in terms of doing a PS3 version. But that's the thing that we’re always faced with. It's not "What would we like to do?" it's “What five things would we give up in order to do the one thing we are able to do?”. And that is the constant frustration we have is, there are only so many hours in the day, and we'd love to be doing all those things simultaneously.

    So I guess all the hype regarding Steam for Linux have finally come to an end?
    -> We won't see a Steam client for Linux before they think it benefits themselves more than doing something else. This could most likely turn into years.

    And this means what?

    So in essence he's been saying what some people have been saying for ages, Valve won't release a client until there's enough demand (sales) for it.

    I didn't get that as the takeaway message at all. To me, it seemed he was saying that it would take time to expand to another platform and they're spread pretty thin. But I agree that things are looking kind of grim.
