Editorial: No, Valve is not killing SteamOS or the Steam Controller

I have mixed feelings about this... Yes, the Softpedia article has a lot of inaccuracies and no, Valve is not (directly) killing SteamOS. But I think the key here, that the article gets right, is

Waaagh! Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III released for Linux with OpenGL & Vulkan, review & port report

Best news ever! I'm just playing this game in OpenGL and suffering some frame drops here and there with a GTX 970... Can't wait to see the difference!
