From The VAR Guy:
Linux gaming may sound like an oxymoron. But while traditional desktop gaming for open source operating systems likely will always remain a tiny niche, next-generation, cloud-based gaming platforms increasingly are playing well with Linux, as a new partnership between Valve and the Linux Foundation makes crystal clear.

The Linux Foundation recently announced that Valve, which develops the popular Steam platform for creating web-based games and other content hosted in the cloud, has signed on as one of the newest members of the Foundation. The move followed Valve's release of a Linux-compatible version of Steam back in February 2013.
