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.

So, they're trying to build market share in a demographic which (a) is less than 0.1% of the market, (b) is not known for buying software, and (c) generally opposes video games as childish?

Well, best of luck to them.


Really? Out of all of my friends and acquaintances I, the Linux user, is the only one that has:
A) A valid Windows XP license (Other MS fanfoys use pirated versions of Windows)
B) Actually buy my games (others just download them)
C) Have to reduce the market share perception of gamers, by dual booting Windows (That frankly crashes too often for me)
