Gabe Newell Talks Linux Steam Client, Source Engine

Good news for all you alternative OS types out there, a Linux Steam client is coming. Let's just hope it comes out before Half-Life Episode 3. wink

It has taken longer than most anyone would have anticipated, but the fact remains that Valve is in fact creating a native Linux port of their Steam game distribution client and of the Source Engine to run natively on Linux. Valve does have some great plans for Linux beyond just shipping the client versions of Steam and their popular games on the Source Engine.
