Games Yesterday Phoronix showed proof of Steam's Linux client existence via its Mac OS X launcher that is currently in closed beta, then this morning they showed further signs of Linux support. Since 2008 it was known that Steam and the Source Engine would come to Linux. As an update, they even pointed out the download link for the Steam Linux binary from their store.

Steam is just a game distribution platform.

Whats the point if there are no games that can be bought that are Linux compatible? A native client won't be compatible with Wine games unless their added as non-steam game launchers.

In this scenario Steam would be nothing but a program manager for Linux games that have no run-time integration.
