    How do you get that? Steam always instantly quits when I try to open system information.

      • Hi,

        It works with wine 1.3.22 or newer.
        Steam is now tracking wine version, perhaps they are checking to see how many wine users there are, to know if its worth making a steam linux client.

        Make sure to participate in the next hardware survey, this is our chance!

          Do I need to enable anything to get into the survey?
          But it will take some month until it gets into the stable trees of the most distributions.

            seems like my screenshot made its way to phoronix
            anyway, i doubt it will change anything.
            probably they wont put it into the hardware survey anyway.

              That's why they did not provide OpenGL renderer for Source engine games on Windows like Blizzard Entertainment's game, which is pretty much same thing, will cause additional overhead instead of increasing performance.

              If their engine is not native to the specific platform than We can use WINE instead.

              Cheers.
              WINE doesn't support multithreading version of Source Engine, so it's important to have native one (even if it will use some wrapper).

                I'll only cheer when I see this on a Valve site.

                    Might that Source Engine have Linux support?

                    • I really should leave this thread alone....
                      Nothing in that link suggests a new engine, just a new game.
                      Interesting news perhaps, but not related in any way to Linux.
