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.

Postal 3 anyone?

Seriously, if there is ANY doubt that the Source engine is being ported to Linux, then they can slap themselves in the face. Postal 3 has been scheduled to be ported to Linux since it was announced, and it was announced to use the Source engine instead of the Unreal Engine like the second one.

Whether or not Steam comes into this, is a best guess. But I would assume that Valve is going to be announcing Steam on Linux soon before Postal 3 is done.

Well they could bring Postal to Linux without porting the Source engine by using Wine.

Who cares anyways when Postal games suck.
