Steam has not been released for linux...yet...

It is more in the 'sit down and have a cup of coffee' stage at the moment in my opinion.

No word as to when an 'actual' release will come about.

strange enougth that every source is from phoronix and phoronixes sources are from some anon guy

and in there threas is even a download link of the "alpha/2" releas with some updates even...so i was asking for someone to tell me where i can get it :)

Bad news people


Around the time that Steam had made its way out for Mac OS X, rumors began circulating that Valve would also release a Linux (http://nexus404.com/Blog/2010/08/22/valve-brushes-off-steam-for-linux-rumors-says-it-aint-happening-valve-says-they-arent-currently-working-on-a-linux-version-of-steam/#) version of the digital distribution platform. In fact, we even had what we thought was official confirmation (http://nexus404.com/Blog/2010/05/13/valve-bringing-steam-to-linux-too-valve-announces-that-steam-will-extend-support-from-windows-and-os-x-to-linux/) back in June that Steam would be coming to Linux, but today we have contrasting reports.
In a statement to GI.biz, Valve’s Doug Lombardi said the following:

“There’s no Linux version that we’re working on right now.”
Short and sweet, but to the point. Keep in mind that companies (http://nexus404.com/Blog/2010/08/22/valve-brushes-off-steam-for-linux-rumors-says-it-aint-happening-valve-says-they-arent-currently-working-on-a-linux-version-of-steam/#) have been known to keep quiet about their projects but for the mean time, we’re just going to assume that Linux won’t be getting Steam anytime soon.
