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.

Hardly. Even Nouveau's own wiki still paints a lot of red: http://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/FeatureMatrix

Well, if you would have looked a year ago there would have been alot more red which has now turned into orange/yellow/green.

Naive.

I don't think that the open source drivers will have overtaken the proprietary ones but I'm certain that they will have decreased the gap further.
