Games It seems to have so far escaped OSNews' notice (if the top few hits for a site-search for 'Steam' is any indication) that Steam for Linux is now in Open Beta; you can get the Linux steam client from steampowered.com. So far, they appear to only be making an Ubuntu .deb available, and the client will require closed-source GPU drivers in order to work.

Too bad that only crap games are available on Steam for Linux.

I guess that 2013 will be the year of the Linux desktop again.

I didn't realize that the Left4Dead series, Serious Sam 3, Team Fortress 2 and Half-Life were considered crap games.

Pretty much the only people who *DON'T* think these games aren't crap are FPS Fanboys.
