Linux is light weight open source operating system, commonly used in big scientific projects, servers and complicated software architectures. Linux is in the hearth of one of the most popular mobile operating systems – Android.
I have a lot of reasons to beleive that Linux will reach even further as one of the main competitors in the game industry since the release of the Steam machine and Steam OS – a fork of the Debian distribution.
Good luck guys and thank you for the great intiative.
