Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Should Valve Start Their Own Steam Distro?

Duggeek writes: There's been a lot of discussion lately about Valve, Steam and the uncertain future of the Windows platform.

While the effect is unmistakably gigundus, it begs a specific question. Would Valve consider putting out its own Linux distro? One advantage of such a thing would be tighter control over kernel drivers, storage, init processes and managing display(s), but would it be worth all the upstream bickering? Would it be better to start anew, or ride on a mature foundation like Fedora or Debian? Might that be a better option than addressing the myriad differences of today's increasingly fracturing distro-scape? Discuss.

Of course you can't flap your arms and fly to the moon. After a while you'd run out of air to push against.
