LXer: There Is No Doubt, Steam Is Coming To Linux!

Published at LXer:

Yesterday we showed proof of Steam's Linux client existence via its Mac OS X launcher that is currently in closed beta, then this morning we showed further signs of Linux support. Since 2008 we have known that Steam and the Source Engine would come to Linux. As an update, we even pointed out the download link for the Steam Linux binary from their store.

You know, all this news of Steam/Source coming to Linux sounds nice, but I'm still rather skeptical...I mean, wouldn't it take a ridiculous amount of time (and by extension, money) to port their games over to OpenGL?

It would be awesome if I could play Portal without having to boot into Windows, but from what I've heard about game companies and their stubbornness about porting their games to the Linux platform (usually it's the old "low market share" excuse ), I just can't see that kind of thing happening for a while.
