Steam for Linux is one of the best news we’ve gotten this year, even though it’s not even launched yet. Even better, the list of games that will be supported by Steam has just increased and there’s no sign it’s slowing down.
A lot of games made their appearance last week, but a large number of games have just been added. The Steam launch on Linux has been treated with the upmost consideration by Valve and they’re not pulling any punches.
