Steam Finally Releases on Linux

For what seems like an eternity Linux users have been waiting for the ever-popular Steam to appear on their systems. The wait is over as Valve has announced it is official.

The client can be downloaded HERE.

All Linux games sold through Steam have been discounted; such as:
Serious Sam 3: BFE
World of Goo
Trine 2
Amnesia: The Dark Descent

The sale will be available until Wednesday, February 21.

Important Note*
All games on Steam take advantage of "Steam Play," which means single purchases can be played across multiple OSes--Linux, Mac, and Windows. That means anyone can take advantage of the discounted prices.

Valve has a bit of advice to Linux users:
"For the best experience, run Steam for Linux on Ubuntu 12.04 using an NVIDIA GPU and drivers from NVIDIA."

  1. Looks okay but I'm sure it's only because I'm on the bloody mobile version. Needs more Mr. Jedi.

  2. Feel free to add whatever information you want in the comments hollowwordssoli. We appreciate the cynicism.
