Games A rumor has been going around for about four months now that Valve is coming out with a Linux version of Steam and had a lot of people in the Linux community very excited. However Valve have officially killed the rumor. And it is not what people wants to hear - there is no Linux version of Steam in development.

Bummer... but not completely unexpected.


Yup. For all you Linux evangelists out there... if you want to know why more people aren't using Linux on the desktop, this is a prime example of why. Of course, I personally don't give a rat's ass about Steam, but for a lot of people, it's definitely a 'killer' application. So you can preach all day about free love, improved security, and all your other talking points, but at the end of the day, if someone's killer application ain't on the platform, it's game over. End of discussion.
