Games "Valve Corporation has today rolled out their Steam Mac OS X client to the general public and confirmed something we have been reporting for two years: the Steam content delivery platform and Source Engine are coming to Linux. This news is coming days after we discovered proof in Steam's Mac OS X Client of Linux support and subsequently found more Linux references and even the unreleased Steam Linux client. The day has finally come and Linux gamers around the world have a reason to rejoice, as this is the biggest news for the Linux gaming community that sees very few tier-one titles." This means Linux users can finally enjoy two of the best games in recent years: Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2. BOOMER!

Linux getting a lot of attention because a lot of people are on the defensive here. It seems to me that some people on other OS's just don't like it, so they need to attack Linux, it's API and desktop share with the same old drivel.

If Valve truly get Steam up and running properly in Linux(so far it's not working very well in OS X, in regard to games working because only Portal and a few 2d stuff work properly) then the jealously will set in and one less reason to attack Linux.
