    Yes, here: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTE3Mzg

    Essentially: There may be a Beta or some other form of Steam on Linux before the end of the year, but the full Steam on Linux push doesn't seem to happen until February.

    Too bad its not sooner! However, I'm glad it's still a go, and they have a definite-ish schedule laid out. I just started playing L4D2 about a week ago with my friends, and it is an awesome game! Its a solid first choice.

    Thumbs up Re: Valve Announcement - Steam client coming to Ubuntu

    If ANYTHING will cause people to abandon Windows for the far better (and free!) operating system, it will be top-shelf games. And I mean games for the PC, not just a bunch of console ports.

    Just because Windows 8 abandons the WIMP paradigm will probably not drive the avarage gamer away from Microsoft. However, no viruses, no intrusions, no DRM just might.

    I drink my Ubuntu black, no sugar.

    Looks like its been confirmed that Valve is getting into the hardware business -

    http://www.maximumpc.com/article/new...dware_business

    If something like a 'steambox' was to be developed it would surely run a Linux OS.

    And IF that happened the number of AAA games released on Linux could balloon

    Or is that just wishful thinking??

    I wouldn't mind a new console - a Steam Box running on Linux would be pretty awesome .

    Looks like the beta could be coming sooner rather than later:

    Remember, those were the HIB, but on Valve time, that could mean anything.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clue
