But maybe due to the flurry by the developers to bring games to Linux and game engines being released on Linux, it could be anyone’s guess that NVidia thought it to be a good time to give Linux users the full feature package too. Add to that Valve pushing Steam machines and Steam OS and NVidia has all the more reason to give their much needed attention in bringing more features to Linux.
