"Joining the Linux Foundation is one of many ways Valve is investing in the advancement of Linux gaming."
- Mike Sartain of Valve explains the company's next step in supporting the future of video games in Linux.

Valve has been pushing Linux in a big way recently, adding Linux support to its Steam client, and making it the basis for the upcoming SteamOS and Steam Machine living room devices.

Now the company has joined The Linux Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux, with the aim to make this new-found focus on Linux even more appealing to more people.

"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," says Sartain.
