Minecraft creator Celebrates SteamOS

Markus “Notch” Persson says announcement of Linux-powered OS is “amazing news.”

Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson has spoken out to praise Valve’s announcement today of its Linux-powered operating system, SteamOS.

This is not the first time Persson has spoken critically of Windows 8. Prior to the operating system’s launch last October, he said Microsoft contacted him about releasing Minecraft for Windows 8 and responded with: “I told them to stop trying to ruin the PC as an open platform.”

SteamOS will launch “soon” as a free download. It has been designed for the TV and the living room, Valve said today. The Half-Life and Portal developer has two more announcements scheduled for later this week.
