From Phoronix: "Valve Corporation has today rolled out their Steam Mac OS X client to the general public and confirmed something we have been reporting for two years: the Steam content delivery platform and Source Engine are coming to Linux. This news is coming days after we discovered proof.

Some enthusiasts "even managed to get the unreleased Steam Linux client running up to a partially drawn UI". I know I'll be benchmarking this client against Wine for sure.

  • my opinion. It will be nice to see Linux get support for top gaming titles. Not only that but in some cases without having to wait weeks or months after the titles initial release. No matter what your thoughts are on Valve and/or Steam I at least think they deserve praise for giving some love to the Linux community.
