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.

1. Steam is not coming to Linux. The so called "proofs" on phoronix site doesn't prove anything beside phoronix guys being noobs when it comes to software developing.

Spotting some string related to Linux in some Os X binaries and claiming that Steam is coming to Linux is lame. Those strings are in Os X binaries for the sole reason that some libraries that Steam client is linked against are present in both Os X and Linux.

Your such a genius. Obviously "steamclient.so" is present in both OSX and Linux. Ubuntu ships it by default.
And http://store.steampowered.com/public/client/steam_client_linux is obviously also not any clue at all for a Linux client of Steam....
