Re: Steam for linuux: Beta on Ubuntu 12.04 Yay for KF - and kudos to Tripwire. I remember when it ran native as a UT2K4 mod. Glad they made that move, though I doubt it was hardly "unreal"istic to port it back. (haw haw)
I hope they provide Steam for GNU/Linux in general. Release the usual rpm/deb/*.gz packages or yum/apt/emerge/pkg_add ways of adding software.
Heck, it's mostly just the games, the Steam Linux "client" has been around for years, if you count the dedicated server update tool. :P
