Valve now a card-carrying member of The Linux Foundation

#1ECOsvaldoPosted 12/5/2013 3:21:35 AM(edited)
In case Valve's multi-tiered investment in Linux gaming weren't clear enough from SteamOS, the Steam Controller and Steam Machines, the company's also joining the ranks of The Linux Foundation membership. Valve Linux head Mike Sartain calls the news, "one of the many ways Valve is investing in the advancement of Linux gaming"; he sees the move as yet another step for Valve toward its bigger goal of popularizing accessible Linux-based gaming.

Microsoft not only was a member of the same organization but also a contributor to the Linux kernel.

That's more of a case of them using GPL code and then releasing it when they were caught.
