Steam is heading to Linux

That’s right. The most popular digital distributor of games is heading to Linux (all good, though I don’t know anyone who uses Linux). The service will allow those who use Linux to hopefully open up more gaming opportunities and make Linux a more viable gaming option. This is especially important considering Humble Indie Bundles have received a high amount of Linux gamers for their present and past bundles.

“Larabel seems suitably impressed with what Valve have working right now, including seeing Left 4 Dead 2 running on the Linux OS Ubuntu: ‘I am still struck by just how interested Valve is in Linux as a platform; it is certainly beyond my original expectations. This Linux work just is not some half-assed attempt by them to make it look like they are a Linux-friendly organization'” (Destructoid).
