    Lets see how valve responds to this, I would like to hear from them and see their spin on it.
    If thery flat out admit it, well actaully thats a good thing as most companies do this behind our backs.
    Lets hope Valve has the backbone to confess if this is true.

    I personally like Gabe Newell and honestly think his works for giving linux steams blessing are a good thing and ca in the long term help gain some needed desktop market share.
    I know how some in the linux community dont trust him, I actually kind of do.
