Confused on Steam Play and Proton? Be sure to check out our guide.
VR support for Linux has been lacking and the communication around it has been pretty damn poor by Valve and HTC, but it seems this is about to change at SteamDevDays.

This image was shared by Pierre-Loup Griffais of Valve:

There will be plenty of talks across today and tomorrow, and I've seen plenty of developers chatting about it in my list of Twitter followers. Sounds like a lot of excitement around SteamDevDays.

I am really excited to see the videos of the talks afterwards, and hopefully we will get a real announcement on when Linux support for the HTC Vive will actually land. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Awesome, this'll make me more interested in the Vive over Rift if that's what it's for.

When this stuff lands, I'll be doing an unboxing video and talking about my experiences with it. For anybody who's interested, keep an eye out!

Wow, I was really starting to get concerned what is going on with their Linux support for VR, seems like Valve will never forget about Linux, they are making it stronger gaming platform slowly but surely :)

It's really quite a special company. Like... "We've got money. We've got time. We don't care." X)

I seriously got goosebumps on my arms when I read this. Not exaggerating one bit - chills went all over like an electric spiderweb.

I. CAN. NOT. WAIT!
