Re: A question about Linux ISOs, No Really LINUX ISO's For real! well steam for linux is about to be released, but sadly needs ubuntu 12.10 from what I've read of it.
I used to used steam in Linux using WINE (wine is not an emulator, recursive acronyms .. get used to those haha) for a long time, played the half-life series that way actually.. worked well but not a forsure.. good luck, it's quite liberating being free from closed corporate software and be at peace with it!
"Officially" Steam for Linux only supports Ubuntu but works with most other distros. My distro of choice is Crunchbang, which is an Openbox based Debian distro and I'm running the beta of Steam just fine.
