I think Valve has a shot at making Linux a viable alternative.
Yes, this will take time. Steam took time. I had it since early beta when it was just a patcher for CS 1.6, and it wasn't very good. The Half Life 2 launch was a disaster from a technical standpoint. Conservative tech-tards wrote it off as something that would never work, that it would never replace discs for media, etc. A few years later and it became an absolutely indispensable part of PC gaming.
Gabe is one of the few tech visionaries out there. He sees where the puck is going and he lays the groundwork years in advance to get to where its going.
Windows doesn't have an alternative for PC gaming. Not yet, but I think it will when Valve is through with their OS.
