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.

I feel almost as strongly about keeping an open-source system as Stallman

Just a quick correction: Richard Stallman does not feel strongly about open source software. Instead, Stallman feels strongly about free software.

Also, a person who feels (almost) as strongly about free software as Stallman would not be interested in making a compromise for non-free software, because it goes against the principles of the Free Software foundation.

In that sense, it kind of sounds like you are more of a proponent of open source software, and not free software.

I realize this may seem like a nitpick, but one Stallman's primary points is to emphasize the difference between the Free Software movement and the Open Source initiative.
