Starbound developer comments on Linux support and their SteamOS icon
Starbound is a really cool game that has supported Linux for quite some time, but they had their SteamOS icon removed on Steam some time ago. The developer is doing a reddit AMA so I decided to pop two questions that got nice answers.

Things I feel Valve need to address to help SteamOS really be something fantastic
I need to state for the record that I am actually feeling positive about it all. I’ve said time and time again SteamOS and Steam Machines would never be an overnight success, but Valve certainly aren’t helping matters. This is more of a “what I hope to see” and not a “we are all doomed” piece. If someone at Valve is reading, please take some notes. I want it to succeed, but Valve need to actually help it.

SteamWorld Heist launched with day-1 Linux support, some thoughts
SteamWorld Heist is the follow up title to the indie hit SteamWorld Dig. A very different game, but it has the charm of the original and then some.
I am going to be psrtioning a computer three ways. One partition is going to be for ArchLinux, which is going to be my go-to distro. Second will either be SteamOS or Windows, for gaming. Third is going to be my "safety OS", for when: -Arch or SteamOS break -A friend is using my computer -There is something I can't do on Arch that I can do on a Debian-based OS I have considered these three. Crunchbang++ I hear is efficient, yet usable. Knoppix comes loaded with a lot of software and I hear it handles user friendliness relatively well. Mint does the same, and has better support for drivers. Which should I choose here?submitted by /u/Jaydom_Studios
Hi all I as hoping you would help me design a Linux curriculum to teach my self over the course of a three month summer break.
