Now that Valve has made the In-Home Steaming feature available to everyone who is using Steam, you might ask yourself if it's of any use for the majority of the Linux players, but that's not the most important question. This seemingly unimportant feature has much broader implications and it might be the game changer in the competition between Windows and Linux. There is no doubt that Windows is a much better gaming OS than Linux right now. That simple fact has nothing to do with something that can be done only by Windows, but with the support for the platform from third parties.
