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.

Fun fact: I recently found that WoW has superior network performance (lower pings overall) while running on under Wine. True story.

You're not the only one. I have about 65ms latency in WoW under Linux+Wine whereas under Windows it's at about 180ms. No idea why, I have applied all the common networking performance enhancing tips and all.

Unfortunately WoW is really crashy on my PC under Linux, probably due to ATi graphics :<
