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.

[...]at the end of the day, if someone's killer application ain't on the platform, it's game over. End of discussion.


I'm afraid that the above statement (while generally true) doesn't apply to this case 100%. Steam and the games do run on Linux (via Wine). So this "killer app" is not technically missing. It's just that it could be better (fewer issues, better performance).
