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.

Yeah, I have to agree. I bought Sim City 3000 and Heroes of Might and Magic for Linux. Oh, I bought Nero for Linux and Borland Kylix Professional v3 too.

Oops, am I now in trouble because I bought some Linux software! Please dude (original poster), don't generalize like that.

As for the 0.1% Linux users. I think that is TOTAL CRAP. There is simply NO way to count the amount of Linux users out there, so the 0.1% is simply an uneducated guess - and a very bad one at that. Linux may be downloaded, copied, shared, installed on 1000's of PC's without payment, without notifying any vendor or OEM etc via some stupid activation key. You simply cannot count the "sales" of Linux like you can for Mac or Windows.
