What if Valve buys OnLive?

With what happened last time with all the lay offs at OnLive it has gotten a bit difficult to trust them.

But if Valve buys them it'll provide us with a trustworthy streaming service with an expansive list of titles for gaming. Though the biggest benefit it'll have for Valve, and this makes the perfect sense, is it'll allow Valve to stream older titles which were not developed for Linux and don't have any chances going forward, while building their Steam Box with a Linux based OS and removing any doubts about the list of titles available.

Now I would like you people to vote on if you think Valve buying OnLive will be a good deal and will Valve actually do it.
