Hmmm... Gabe Newell recently asked Michael over at Phoronix if he could put him in touch with a good Linux graphics programmer too...
So, let me be the first to propose the completely untrue rumor that Valve is building a Linux-based console to compete with the PS4 and XB720! It will have an AMD-based six+ core CPU, AMD GPU w/1GB of video RAM, 1GB of system RAM, internet connectivity, and its own customized Steam store. Also, it will be totally green, as it runs solely on unicorn poo.
Sadly, it will be scrapped 6 months into development when the designers realize that attaching Linux to an AMD GPU is like chaining a Ferrari to a tree.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
About time someone taps into the powers of unicorn poo!
Perfect! Im a graduating EE and im looking for a job...
