LXer: Linux gaming steams ahead, Wikimedia sticks with open formats, and more

Published at LXer:

Fans of Linux gaming are having a great year. Steam has dramatically increased the number of games with Linux support available through their service. Though there is some disagreement about the exact number of games now available for Linux (some say 530, while others were only able to find 333 games when searching the catalog), there is no doubt that either figure is a huge improvement over the 60 available on the service this time last year. With many people listing PC gaming as the top obstacle keeping them from switching to an open source operating system, this is certainly welcome news. And Linux users have already shown that they're willing to support gaming with their wallets; just look at the most recent Humble Bundle, where Linux users continue to be the top-dollar contributors.
