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 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.

Except that for such a small Desktop fraction they generate so much issues.

I feel others have already rebutted your comment quite well, but I'll just add my own here: how well did Steam function on OSX, for example, when it was first released? Or under Windows, for that matter? It is certainly not unfathomable for such a system to experience some birth pains. Linux - devs are crafty people and where they can't fix something themselves they'll atleast be able to point someone else to the problem, so I can't quite agree with your assessment here.
