here read this link....

http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/03/30/valve-actively-seeking-linux-devs/?ns_campaign=article-feed&ns_mchannel=ref&ns_source=steam&ns_linkname=0&ns_fee=0

my fave game of all time half-life and half-life 2 will shortly be available for linux.... i would asume all the games on steam will be ported to linux not just valve games but might be wrong non the less......you guys will have real games available to ya now.....not that ac isn't a real game....but valves games have the best netcode around so nice to play lag free lol...

It would be great if that happens. As the article says, the rise of Android makes a good reason for them to port the code to Linux-like operating systems. Still, I would expect it to be many months before we see anything.

I hope this goes better than what Netflix promised. Two engineers said they were working on getting instant watch running on Linux and three months later Netflix announces they abandoned the project Sad

Anyhow, I don't game anymore, but that seems pretty sweet for the Linux community, seeing as games seem to be the biggest thing deterring Windows users away from the OS.

Also, haven't posted in around a year so hai Wink

Excellent news. I have created a steam account and applied for the beta. My setup is fairly unusual and I've been using Linux for years so hopefully I will have a reasonable chance.

Strangely enough, I was just trying to get the steam beta installed. I came up against 2 problems: I forgot my steam account name, and valve only supply a .deb installer. Supposedly it does work on other distros, but it was starting to look like a bit too much of a ball ache for a relaxing Saturday afternoon.
