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.

Last time I checked, Steam was already running on Linux. Actually, it runs on Linux for years. It runs on Linux right now. Counter Strike:Source is number 3 on Wine's Top-10 Platinum List ("Applications which install and run flawlessly on an out-of-the-box Wine installation").

These talks are all only about a _native_ client. Would be nice for people who use both Linux+Steam, but not a necessity at all.

But nevertheless thank you for your most valuable and informative comment about the state of affairs.
