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.

Question. Do we need one? From a practical standpoint.

Honestly, absolutely not. People who think everything should be open & free will tell you otherwise but of course none of those people are in the business of selling video cards (and who prefer to continue doing so).
