Half Life 3: Would You Install it if It Released for Linux?
If it ever releases at all that is.
We’ve already gone through the possibilities of Half Life 3, if and when it ever comes out, releasing for a limited time on SteamOS. Valve has assured us that they have no “exclusives” planned for the platform, but it does make us wonder – what if Half Life 3 came out to Linux?
For starters, SteamOS has a Linux architecture. Valve could very well use the Steam Machines as a stepping stone to bring SteamOS on to PCs as a legitimate alternative to Windows. It sounds far-fetched, for sure, but so did releasing a living room centric PC and corresponding OS for Steam. Half Life 3 could then arrive for the platform and Linux to further cater to users.
Linux is by no means as complicated to use now as it was a decade ago and there are plenty of easy to install, Linux-based operating systems. If Half Life 3 did arrive for Linux, would you install it? Let us know in the comments below.
