Howdy all,

On last week's Byte Into It on 3RRR, a good chunk of the time was
devoted to a software freedom discussion:

* Valve Software are working on a Steam client for Ubuntu; Ben won't be
  using it because DRM and non-free games are both to be avoided even
  for games.

* Gabe Newell, Valve's founder, acknowledges their success is very much
  due to free and open platforms, and it is evident that Valve and Intel
  programmers collaborating understand the need for software freedom. We
  discuss the benefits and barriers around these issues.
