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.

Oh thank you, I was flabbergasted no one raised this point.

I really definitely prefer supporting developers directly (there are a few good independant games released for Linux each year).

Maybe there could be some special community powered repositories to distribute them at prices specified by the developers with a low fee that would just be enough to cover the servers costs (?). Wonder what will befall of Ubuntu One.
