How about people give it one month (until May) to call Michael a liar? Until then, please sit back and come down.
@kraftman: would you please clear your private messages? They're full. I have a question related to the KDE distribution you're running.
I wrote a brief email to gabe newell (email@example.com) in which I asked him if he really contacted Phoronix and he responded with a simple "Yes."
Guys, now there is four independent people who have e-mail's from Gabe with confirmation. Someone still doesn't believe?
Only thing we have that is proof is Valve saying they are not working on linux - NOTHING has been provided to counter this hard statement. The only way to counter a hard statement like this from Valve is another hard statement from Valve, not some random statements from random people on the internet AND even less from a "news site" who has a history of spinning hearsay
Also it is the 1st of April
As mentioned citable information from a Valve controlled domain really is the only way to confirm this.
If you doesn't believe in words you may be believe in logic:
By the way, it's maybe sound's funny, but I also have a source (one of pubslishers who work with Valve) who confirm to me for last two years "working on Steam for Linux is not cancelled and not stopped". Sure, doesn't believe in this my words is your right.
I'll be out at the Valve offices in about three weeks. Hopefully will be permitted to do a brief video there with confirmation and other Linux details.
It is still just statements on the internet. No actual citable proof and thats the point. This is the difference between an educated guess/prediction and reporting news - what is being peddled here? you decide but history dictates
We have been down this road before, 2years ago infact which was paved with Michael belittling ppl that didn't think STEAM/SOURCE was coming "this summer" THAT only stopped when Valve made a press statement stating
This is citable and is viewable by anyone else. Saying "I have received and email confirming foo" isn't providing proof, it is making a statement, a statement that cannot be independently confirmed.Valve denies having a Linux version of Steam in the works

It is because we have been down this road before, been belittled by Michael in the "news" articles written here for not believing him that it was coming "this summer" (that was 2years ago btw... oh look what didn't come...)
so put up or shut up.
