    Is this the year of improbable events happening? A new version of Skype, Unity 4 and now Steam?

    Of course, with Steam the proof will be with the support. And just one game so far - Left For Dead 2. What, not even the Portal games? Going by Mac Steam, I guess that we're going to be seeing a lot of indie and Unity 4-made titles on Linux Steam and little else - hope the games'll be good then!

    I agree completely with you on this one. Near everything in my house runs Ubuntu except for my Android phone and an old PPC.

    I believe the reason for L4D2 was because thats what they were playing in the office.

    I'm stoked, I havent played my steam games in months/years because I hate booting into windows just to play a game and then having to boot back to do everything else.
    You can have quality, price, or performance, but you can only choose two.

    Once they get their Source Engine running well then all their Source games will follow. I think the catalog will look a lot like the one on Steam for the Mac.

    I wonder if Value is looking at creating the own "console" running a barebones linux install. That way the system resources can be used for the game not the OS.

    They are putting a lot of money and effort into this they will want return on investment and my guess is: they made the move because it now makes economical sense to reach this market.

    So, I believe that there will be more and more games including mainstream ones as well on the long run.
    Linux cheat sheet

    If you can't afford to loose it, if you don't know how to get it back: back it up.
