Games Born out of the demise of Loki Software in 2001 was Linux Game Publishing, but now a decade later the fate of LGP is not looking good for the company that has ported about two dozen game titles to Linux.

AFAIK they've moved beyond speculation and have actually provided proof for Steam+Linux.

Those do show Steam running on Linux. However, that doesn't mean that Steam will ever support Linux. It could have been an internal test that accidentally ended up on Valves's servers.

Personally, I do think that Steam will come to Linux. However, I think it will take awhile, and Valve will wait until it is usable to officially announce support. So, Phoronix may be right, but they can't say the Steam is "definitely" coming to Linux (as in Valve has announced it).
