  • On the steam user forums someone created a script to run through his steam folder and report any mention of linux.

    Here's the results:
    "linux": http://codepad.org/KPoe9LeI
    "wine": http://codepad.org/3BZVrtkn

    quite interesting, especially the wine part.

    • I dont see anything special in that. I remember when i first read about l4d for linux and checked it myself. It was just for the dedicated server. The only thing that was more interesting was the not-working steam client. I am sure that you will find linux references in every game based on an engine which has a dedicated linux server.

      • well otherwise, why would they be keeping tabs on wine usage. that was an interesting revelation.

        • Ok, they test for the wine build used. At least they count wine users, but did you see wine in official stats yet?

                  It seems to be in client and graphics engine files as well, not just server files.
