    In a recent Steam update, this was one of the items:
    "Updated Steam binaries; fixes Linux crash on shutdown or restart"

          If you're referring to the TF2 update that was clearly for the server.

              Those are already on Steam. This is not what Greenlight is about.

                Greenlight is about getting Valve to fund new games, isn't it?

                Not just sticking already existing games onto Steam.

                  No, it's not.
                  Greenlight and Kickstarter are completely different.
                  The problem that Steam has had in the past is that major stuidios have spent millions of dollars and pushed out great big piles of poo for games. Meanwhile, independent developers have very very low budgets, but also have a capacity to make very original and high quality games that don't sell very well because they don't have any advertising dollars and not many people know about them.

                  In the distant past, it was only the games that have spent millions of dollars on their development that would *EVER* appear on Stream.
                  Since the humble bundle, lots of very low budget, very creative, and high quality games have shown up on stream. However if your game is not in the Humble Bundle, then there is very little chance of your low budget game getting into steam.

                  Steam Greenlight allows *ANY* user to request *ANY* game (completed or not) to be put into steam and if it gets enough votes then it simply happens. On top of that, Steam Greenlight will filter out games that users think are garbage, regardless of how much the developers can spend on advertising or how much they spent developing the game.

                    i saw the tab

                    some games were ok, i voted up about 5 or so of the 16.

                    im glad valve is sticking this out there so early (or right on schedule if they get a beta out soon after)
                    as it helps with preventing it with being alienated on its first launch,
                    i will expect a bunch of minor linux add-ins on steam soon, even when the actual things not launched to the public yet

                    still kinda wondering how big picture would be on linux, spell me a custom virtualbox for big picture please
