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.

When will people stop repeating this myth? Your average game just needs SDL and OpenGL. You can pretty much assume that those are installed, and you can statically link against everything else. It's really not very hard.

Agreed. All these sound systems and graphic drivers issues haven't stopped ID from porting Doom III to Linux as a last-minute gift and it still runs fine on today's distribution with proprietary drivers.
