Games "Valve Corporation has today rolled out their Steam Mac OS X client to the general public and confirmed something we have been reporting for two years: the Steam content delivery platform and Source Engine are coming to Linux. This news is coming days after we discovered proof in Steam's Mac OS X Client of Linux support and subsequently found more Linux references and even the unreleased Steam Linux client. The day has finally come and Linux gamers around the world have a reason to rejoice, as this is the biggest news for the Linux gaming community that sees very few tier-one titles." This means Linux users can finally enjoy two of the best games in recent years: Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2. BOOMER!

I just had a look in the Steam store at the Mac titles. Because people are saying that they have ported the source engine to Mac. But it is full of lots of other games as well.

Civilisation IV, Football Manager 2009
Many pop cap and casual games as well

Also all the Indie games that probably already had a Mac client.

This may mean that if they port to Linux as well there will be quite a lot of titles.

I also definitely think that Valve is looking at the portable market or trying to shore up the entire PC/Mac market.
