It's Official: Valve Releasing Steam, Source Engine For Linux!
I've been using linux in workstations/desktops/laptops for 15 years now, but I don't do much gaming. And I don;t do windows. So, please excuse the question. But could someone please, pretty please, summarize what this all means?
I thought Steam was some sort of interface to download binary-only games on Windows. But it seems that I was off. And it seems they also develop a games engine?
Very many thanks in advance, I'd love to have a reason to be happy (it's cold, dark and rainy here, today ).
This is amazing news. Hopefully publishers port some games to Linux. My only concern is that I run a ton of Steam games through wine, and I know there only a certain number of those will be ported. Will steam support a wine wrapper for those games not being ported?
