No comment: the new way of saying "yes".

games.on.net had the chance to interview Razer’s CEO Min-Liang Tan in Sydney on Tuesday, and he confirmed that the company was very excited about Valve’s recently announced SteamOS.
“I think it’s great,” he said to me. “I’m passionate about it and I’m excited about it. I think it’s a huge boost to the entire industry.”
Tan also confirmed that the recently-released (in Australia) Razer Blade was Linux-ready right now.
“You can run Linux right now on a Razer Blade. We are getting drivers out for the Switchblade UI — the stuff on the 17-inch — pretty shortly. But you can run Ubuntu on this any time.”
On the question of Razer and the Steam Box, however, Tan was more coy.
“I have no comment,” he said, laughing, when I asked him how long we’d have to wait until Razer announced their own Steam hardware. “I’ve been waiting for this question! You’re not going to get me to, uh… no comment.”
I changed tack and asked him about the Steam Controller.
“It’s weird and cool,” he said. “I think it’s uh, it’s very… I’ve got no comment.”
“So you haven’t touched it and played with it, in person?” I said.
“I have no comment,” he replied, laughing some more. “No comment.”
