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.

It'll run, just probably not in 64 bit mode.

Why not?
64bit linux is way ahead of 64bit windows and always has been, i would venture that most linux users with 64bit capable hardware are running 64bit versions and the vast majority of applications have been available as native 64bit apps for many years.

I would imagine that most people running linux on hardware capable of running modern games will be running 64bit versions anyway. If anything, it is 32bit that will be left out.
