This news is huge as far as what will be the next gaming arena and Ubuntu is in the game. The fear I have is that they will move so mauch to web based that Bill Gates's dream of having everyone having to pay a monthly feee to use their computers.
The powers to be really want that and to make our computers into simple dumb terminals. Google is already testing it, Chromebook and look at the lose from moving from a 13" Macbook Pro to a iPad (tampon). I will keep my Pro and OS X 10.6. You can take OS X Lion (iOS on steroids) and your app store forced download of 4Gb to "upgrade" to Lion and shove it where the sun don't shine. Oh wait, your based in San Francisco so instead take it and walk off a short peer.
I would look at buying a iPad if it had some real storage space options to give the capabilities of a real computer such as a SD card slot and a micro-USB port. I would also want the iPad to be able to boot from the SD card slot in some sort of bios screen. Not until then.
Jesus, what a bunch of ignorant children. Steam is a content delivery system. Just because there is Steam on some platform doesn't mean any more games will be available on that platform. The developers still have to port every game to that platform, and if they're not doing it for Windows and OS X, you can be sure they're not doing it for Linux.
