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.

Source engine supports OpenGL.

It was announced with their when they unveiled their plans for a Steam Mac client a few months ago.


Hopefully, the games will work properly on both Mac OS X and Linux platforms.

I'd certainly be more willing to spend money on games if I wasn't paying for operating system upgrades.

I deleted my Windows partition recently and gave up two games (UT3 and Quake 4), even though I don't know if they're available or not. In any case, I'd rather support Linux to get more games since that's a big factor in keeping Windows desirable.
