Games It seems to have so far escaped OSNews' notice (if the top few hits for a site-search for 'Steam' is any indication) that Steam for Linux is now in Open Beta; you can get the Linux steam client from steampowered.com. So far, they appear to only be making an Ubuntu .deb available, and the client will require closed-source GPU drivers in order to work.

Bahaha! Looks like this is closed source everything, so I'm sure the FOSS crowd isn't going to be happy.

Which begs the question... how does the FOSS crowd suppose that game developers can be profitable releasing source code for their games? Well, if the games are as much of a pain in the ass to get running under Linux as it sounds, I guess they could charge for support ;) LMAO


At least 5G free hard drive space (more if you want to play games!)

You have to be fragging kidding me! At least 5G free hard drive space to *INSTALL* this worthless garbage?

If I'm going to dedicate OVER FIVE GIGABYTES of my harddrive space to something, it sure as hell isn't *THIS*
