  • 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.

                          It will be here just after Phoronix breakes the Guinesse World Record for the longest thread ever.

                          • Quite a long thread indeed. And my first post! I didn't want to look through it all, but I assume the Portal 2 files and previous discoveries were found.

                            Did anyone mention Postal 3's Source Engine use and native Linux client? It's been confirmed by Running With Scissors; they and their development partners may have been tasked with helping Valve get Source up to par for Linux (which was rumored that Valve was seeking outside help.. from an unnamed Valve employee here in Seattle).

                              I haven't heard anything that indicates that this is "confirmed", although, if I recall correctly Running With Scissors said they will hopefully have a Linux version for Postal III, can you back up this statement?

                              • It's exactly one year now since the Steam Mac client has been released.
                                Good time to give up hope? I don't want to.
