Renewed hope for Steam on Linux: Valve job boards looking for engineer to port Windows games

If we're to believe this new job posting over at Valve, reports of Steam for Linux's death may have been greatly exaggerated. As you can see, Valve is on the hunt for a senior engineer who can port Windows games to Linux.
