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.

Another thing that is kind of overlooked is that when they (recently) launched Steam for the Mac platform - all your previously bought games that were compatible were instantly available to you as downloads on the Mac. That means if you bought Halflife 2 on Windows Steam, you can download it on your Mac Steam as well, with no extra cost.

Now - if they only wanted the money, they could've easily just made you buy the game twice. I think that shows some real goodwill.
