Nonprofit organization The Linux Foundation announced today that it had signed on three new members, including Half-Life and Steam developer Valve.

Through these efforts, we hope to contribute tools for developers building new experiences on Linux, compel hardware manufacturers to prioritize support for Linux, and ultimately deliver an elegant and open platform for Linux users,” Valve's Linux head Mike Sartain said.
The organization, founded in 2002, says it is dedicated to fostering the growth of Linux and collaborative software development. Valve is no stranger to Linux. The company ported the popular Steam platform to the OS in February 2013 and its own Steam Machines will run on Linux when the systems arrive sometime next year.
