Submission + - Native Steam Client for Linux: Take 1000-> 1

Jorl17 writes: It seems that there's even more evidence of a steam client for Linux. 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.

Submission + - Portuguese PM caught on taps; media manipulation

Jorl17 writes: Portugal is going through a rough time. With PM Engenheiro Sócrates being accused of trying to buy the silence of part of the media. TVI, a Portuguese TV Station, had a usually anti-PM news segment canceled. Rumors said that PM had pressured so that this would happen. Now the content of taps belonging to the "Hidden Face" (Face Oculta) case (a case of corruption in the government) is being continuously published in weekly newspaper "Sol". Out today, the latest edition sold out in a matter of hours...and it is said to have been published against law.

I don't know about you, but I don't get how, even knowing part of this, the Portuguese people re-elected Engenheiro Sócrates.
