With all of the reports about Steam being ported, I haven't seen too many reports about the games that will be ported.
    Yeah, your probably right, so far it only sounds like its the valve games coming. But a start is a start, and once Linux draws more attention, its only a matter of time before we start getting the same as the rest.

    Re: Steam coming to Ubuntu

    I'm using Steam now and playing games on Linux. Sadly, not every game works well but about 80% of the ones I play are working just fine. I have trouble with TFC2. I have no complaints, really. Just wondering why Valve doesn't see the potential. They're going to be caught with their pants down if Windows 8 (or anything after that) bombs. Linux is much more stable and consistent.

    Yeah, I use steam through wine also, I black ops single player work perfect, zombies gets laggy, and multiplayer doesn't work at all.

    I've heard about EA doing some deal with Linux too.

    I'll get a bottle of champagne for the day when I can finally play Sid Meier's Civilization NATIVELY on GNU/Linux.

    Win!
