But that's was not what Chazore was saying. He said that Gabe isn't going to sell Valve to MS because he has voiced disagreements against MS in the past.
Gabe has a well known and documented history of why he elft MS, why he still to this day disagrees with them, and why he even made Valve. All of what he has done has been based around his ideals and design, which doesn't at all point towards him suddenly giving that up to the company he left nearly 3 decades later.
I find the notion that "it's going to happen like it or not" is based on both willful desire and ignorance, rather than facts and reality that we can see before us.
