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.

I have a problem with it being 200Mb. Seriosusly, why is it so big even without any installed games? It's absurd.
On the other hand, in a world where driver installers come in at almost 100MB (Hi NVIDIA) I guess I shouldn't expect better.
