    Steam for Linux Beta

    Steam for Linux Beta Announced - IGN

    and from their official site

    Beta Late Than Never | Valve

    I can imagine the better results of running steam without the need for a Windows OS

    I can say what sparked this is Gaben hates Windo ws 8 and is refusing to release Steam for it. This actually has me interested in trying a Linux OS.

    It better not turn into iOS, because that would be a load of bullshit.

    Steam for Linux means nothing without games. As much as I would want to move from Windows to Linux (free OS > $100 OS), I doubt every game on Steam will work on Linux.

    Valve is putting their whole game list on linux.

    that will help everyone move over if they want to move. That will also convince game devs to make linux versions.
