Message from Valve about why they care about Linux gaming, and you should too:

http://steamcommunity.com/app/221410/discussions/0/1696043806550421224/

"We've noticed that what started out as a routine cleanup of the Steam Store navigation turned into a story about the delisting of Steam Machines. That section of the Steam Store is still available, but was removed from the main navigation bar based on user traffic. Given that this change has sparked a lot of interest, we thought it'd make sense to address some of the points we've seen people take away from it.

While it's true Steam Machines aren't exactly flying off the shelves, our reasons for striving towards a competitive and open gaming platform haven't significantly changed. We're still working hard on making Linux operating systems a great place for gaming and applications. We think it will ultimately result in a better experience for developers and customers alike, including those not on Steam.

Through the Steam Machine initiative, we've learned quite a bit about the state of the Linux ecosystem for real-world game developers out there. We've taken a lot of feedback and have been heads-down on addressing the shortcomings we observed. We think an important part of that effort is our ongoing investment in making Vulkan a competitive and well-supported graphics API, as well as making sure it has first-class support on Linux platforms.

Recently we announced Vulkan availability for macOS and iOS, adding to its existing availability for Windows and Linux. We also rolled out Steam Shader Pre-Caching, which will let users of Vulkan-based applications skip shader compilation on their local machine, significantly improving initial load times and reducing overall runtime stuttering in comparison with other APIs. We'll be talking more about Shader Pre-Caching in the coming months as the system matures.

At the same time, we're continuing to invest significant resources in supporting the Vulkan ecosystem, tooling and driver efforts. We also have other Linux initiatives in the pipe that we're not quite ready to talk about yet; SteamOS will continue to be our medium to deliver these improvements to our customers, and we think they will ultimately benefit the Linux ecosystem at large."

Get away from spyware and Microsoft's monopoly by switching to Linux! The more who switch, the more games we'll have! Over 4,400+ on Steam alone now and counting!

I'm gonna play this bad boy on my Linux SteamOS Box =3

I wonder if Croteam is doing a full VR experience as part of the Valve VR for Linux initiative and Croteam's recent interest in VR.

Looking forward to it! +1 to +4 (I got linux homies)

Croteam has been making all their games VR and is of course one of the biggest promoters of Linux right along with Valve and others, so I think I can safely say "yes". :3

Can't wait!!!

Agreed. Thanks Croteam for you support and your effort in pushing new technologies like Vulkan, can't wait to give you my money.
I'm almost sure this will be Vulkan-exclusive (at least on Linux).

Considering that it'll be based on Fusion engine, I think it'll have OpenGL support - Croteam isn't going to remove it soon because of legacy systems. However, Vulkan almost surely will be a default - Fusion already defaults to Vulkan on Linux systems, if driver is available.

Love Croteam for their awsome Linux support!
And now that they have a really solid tried and tested engine, with Vulkan ready to go, I think SS4 is going to be amazing.

Thank you Croteam for supporting Linux. I will definitely buy SS4.

Croteam rocks on all levels in my book. They've done and supported so many platforms and ways to play. More than the average developer.
