Develop for Debian; get free games

Valve has an obvious favourite flavour of Linux as revealed by the free games they will be showering Debian developers with.  Any and all Valve published games, past or future, will be made available to developers for free.  This makes sense as SteamOS is branched from Debian 7.1 "Wheezy", making it very worth Valve's time and money to make friends with developers for Debian.  Maybe it is time to update your coding skills and become a developer; The Register didn't specify that Half Life 3 will be out first on Linux but do you really want to run that risk?

"Games vendor Valve has offered a surprise present to the Debian Linux community, in the form of subscriptions that give Debian project members free, unlimited access to all Valve game titles – past, present, and future – forever."

Give the Debian developers Free Beer too, to develop a tablet distro for the upcoming Nvidia's Tegra K1, and AMD's Mullins, and Beema tablets, No Android or RT, just some Linux debian based for tablets Steam OS goodness! Yes Gabe get some developer refrence Tablets into the hands of those Debian developers, I would love to own a Steam branded Tablet, for gaming and other non chained to any App store by default, except what I choose to run, use! Free beer and wings, as well as hardware and games for those Debian folks, and that includes a SteamTablet to go along with the SteamBox, a Steam tablet with game streaming from the SteamBox would be great.
