Alienware, a computer manufacturer that is well known for the quality and power of its systems, has partnered up with Crytek for a very interesting goal, to ignite Linux-based game development. You might ask yourself why does Alienware care about Linux development at all? The answer is actually pretty simple. It has an important stake in it. The company has announced a while ago that it is going to develop one of the SteamBox consoles designed by Valve.
