Don’t count your penguins before they’ve hatched

Leave it to Richard Stallman to pour cold water on a hot idea. The noted free software activist has come out against Steam for Linux, writing that “Nonfree game programs (like other nonfree programs) are unethical because they deny freedom to their users. (Game art is a different issue, because it isn’t software.) If you want freedom, one requisite for it is not having nonfree programs on your computer.”

It’s the argument I would have accepted from Stallman, actually. But it doesn’t mean it’s necessarily right — or the best one he could have made.

As Linux has shown time and time again over the last 20 years, with even the best free software, you typically get what you pay for: half-realized concepts, poor user interfaces, and support that’s either nonexistent or completely relegated to a community that may or may not be able to help you with whatever issue you’re facing.
