Games Yesterday Phoronix showed proof of Steam's Linux client existence via its Mac OS X launcher that is currently in closed beta, then this morning they showed further signs of Linux support. Since 2008 it was known that Steam and the Source Engine would come to Linux. As an update, they even pointed out the download link for the Steam Linux binary from their store.

There are quite a few indie games being released on multiple platforms including Linux. Right now, every single one features its own distribution system and installation medium. It's kind of a mess.

Steam would be able to mitigate those issues by offering a standard platform for game developers to target.
