    This is the worst form of jumping to conclusions, especialy because Webkit is totaly cross platform, in case you never took notice. And porting to Linux just to implement Webkit to see how it handles? C'mon! You've got to admit that sounds as probable as an alien WTC conspiracy theory...

    That doesn't really prove anything one way or another. That is what he would have to reply whether or not they were working on a linux port.

    I'm not expecting a direct answer, but I just mailed Valve and asked them if they would debunk that they have any serious intention of porting over to Linux in order to clear up some possible confusion.

    Let's see if they will actually deny

    Well, some people don't want their hopes and dreams crushed by the cold hard weight of reality.

    Doug is one of Valve heads. I doubt he even had a NDA.

    What sort of proof do you need? A video showing Gabe trampling on a Tux plush?
