    Aye, HL2 is downloading now! On my Acer C7 Chromebook, running Chrubuntu, which DOES run Half-Life 1, and Portal. So, we'll see...

    Edit: Great googlymoogly! It runs on this little $200 wonder, due to the magic of Steam and Ubuntu!

    Personally waiting on CS:GO, but I'm surprised how much they released this week. For all we know, Portal 2 & CS:GO could be out within the next week

    Hell yes! Now if only they released Source SDK 2007 for Linux so that I could play Black Mesa.

    Just installed the Half Life 2 beta on this laptop running openSUSE and Steam. Okay, it's not Ubuntu, but I'm finding it very choppy and slow. It's not a great spec, but I would have thought it enough for this game, with a dual core AMD A6 2.7Mhz, 6Gb RAM, and a Radeon 750G with the proprietary Catalyst driver.

    Any ideas? Other than sod off to the openSUSE forums.

    Sod off you ....

    As it's beta, it may need some optimizing in codes, so bug report may be a good idea. but you could also try different distros to see if you get better performance and see if the same happens there.

    Try running the game at a lower quality. If that doesn't help, crap can openSUSE and use Ubuntu.

    Fixed it. I just rebooted and it's fine now. Very nice! Lovely to have this classic title on Linux.

    Am now sodding off for a quick game.
