Games A rumor has been going around for about four months now that Valve is coming out with a Linux version of Steam and had a lot of people in the Linux community very excited. However Valve have officially killed the rumor. And it is not what people wants to hear - there is no Linux version of Steam in development.

Theres like a utf8 char in the article â€".

Steam cashing good since they deliver content distribution for loads of games but it seems it still doesn't worth for them to care about nix users.

Anyways the times when I was spending hours on hacking games with wine and cedega are long gone. You can build a windows gaming box for almost nothing nowadays so who cares about gaming on linux anymore.

Also in most cases the video drivers cause crashes, slowdowns, video ram trashing and other things why you need to keep rebooting your box and it's the same in linux as well. If you planning to build a linux gaming box just because you think it's more stable and able to outfps your win games think twice.
