Say all you like about SteamOS, but understand that if it wasn't for Steam's focus on Linux with SteamOS, including Valve's efforts to port their games to Linux, do you really think these game developers would be wasting any of their R&D money making their games run in Linux? I honestly don't.
Do not kid yourself, without SteamOS being successful, game developers will have no reason to put up the cost of porting their game engines and games to Linux.
