Say what you will about Valve, they are quite determined that gamers have a real alternative to Windows for serious computer gaming. They are pulling out all the stops to put an end to Microsoft's control of computer gaming, and they are doing a very good job fighting on behalf of gamers and developers to create gaming alternatives to Windows. Steam on Linux, Steam on OS X, Steam Machines and SteamOS are all geared toward ending Microsoft's dominance in computer gaming. Valve knows that it would be a very foolish thing for gaming developers to be too dependent on Windows, and the company has taken matters into its own hands in an extremely aggressive way.
