Linux Gamers and Windows Haters Can Rejoice




A picture says a thousand words. What you see is not running through Wine. This native Steam Engine for Linux is in development right now. Just in this picture alone shows how many Windows apps have already been ported to Linux such as Hulu Desktop, Google Chrome and now Steam just in this picture. Valve says this work is due for release in the Summer. It is following the already released Steam for OSX. Helping gamers escape the Gates of Hell!!! A Google search string for the steam's site shows a script for Linux Steam.
