Valve Joins The Linux Foundation

After announcing the Linux-based SteamOS, Valve has joined the non-profit consortium that hopes to grow the free operating system.

The Linux Foundation announced today that three new members had been signed on, including Steam developer Valve.

“Joining the Linux Foundation is one of many ways Valve is investing in the advancement of Linux gaming,” said Vale’s Linux head Mike Sartain “Through these efforts, we hope to contribute tools for developers building new experiences on Linux, compel hardware manufacturers to prioritize support for Linux, and ultimately deliver an elegant and open platform for Linux users,”

The Linux Foundation is also tied in with other gaming giants including Sony and World of Tanks publisher Wargaming.

The organization was founded in 2002 and is dedicated to creating the growth of Linux and other collaborative software development.
