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.

It's actually extremely rare for games to use widgets provided by the os, most render their own custom interfaces directly (ie using opengl) and so would be very easily portable between osx/linux.
