Hardware, Embedded Systems AlienWare (so Dell) has just unveiled a gaming PC running Ubuntu and Steam, designed to be hooked up to a TV - essentially a Steambox. "With over 25 gaming titles available and more being added, users can access Steam For Linux to play online games, including your favorite titles like Team Fortress 2 and Serious Sam 3." Everything starts out small, but with Valve going full throttle with this, expect this library to grow.

I bet you don't remember buying physical games that can be resold and borrowed. I gave my friend my steam user and password so he could play half life two, along with the retail box. That is pathetic!! Once the serial is registered to me, that's it.

Oddly I do remember but I'm not a gamer the only game I ever really got into was the original Doom. I'm aware of Steams DRM but at least with Linux its not built into the very nature of the platform - you can choose what to install and what not to install.
