While work is well and truly underway to help Linux overcome the 'Year 2038 problem', Torvalds has shot down a slew of patches targeting its virtual filesystem switch kernel interface.
While Linux has dominated smartphones, tablet and servers, it has struggled to replicate that success on the desktop prompting an upbeat Torvalds to admit that he is "still working on it".
The Linux Foundation has announced that Valve has officially joined its organization as part of Valve's push for its Linux based SteamOS and its Steam Machines launch in 2014.
