Valve recently delisted the Steam Machine section from the main navigation bar, triggering a wave of rumours about the impending death of the Steam Machine program and Valve’s Linux support. Pierre-Loup Griffais, a coder at Valve, posted an update on the Steam community forums clarifying the situation. He emphasized that Valve’s support for Linux is not going anywhere. While Griffais admitted that sales of Steam Machines have been low, the removal of the category is strictly a house cleaning measure to neaten the main navigation bar.
Moving forward, Valve will be continuing to focus on increasing support for Vulkan across the gaming industry and improving the gaming experience on Linux.
