    Great game. I still play it. Same mechanics as CS 1.6 but with added bots and optional higher resolution models and touched up maps. The old, untouched maps are there as well. The single point of suckage for this game was the addition of the riot shield. Whoever's responsible for that must have been on crack >.<

    Waiting for CS:GO. Already got it for Windows, but rebooting always sucks. I want GO on Linux dammit! Now! :-)

      Still waiting for DOTA 2. Hopefully it'll be the next game they port, it's already the most popular one on Steam and the amount of players continues to grow rapidly (50k in the last month alone, as far as I know). Also it's still in Beta, so it's under heavy development anyway.

        I'm not a huge fan of CS (though I'm currently becoming obsessive of it in 'Gun Game' mode...), but I'm really waiting for L4D2 - hopefully soon!

          An interesting thing to notice is that CS:CZ was previously NOT available for OSX.
          This really shows how serious Valve is with bringing *all* their releases to Linux (compared with their OSX support).

          Hoping for L4D2 and Dota2 next

          Also, if anyone from Valve is out there *hint* *hint* *hint* cs:cz sale *hint* *hint* *hint*.

            There was already one, I think. A Linux sale where you could buy the stuff for 30% of the price or something like that.

                    They aren't in a hurry yet, but Valve needs to bring their most recent games to Linux to make it more relevant.
                    DOTA 2, CS: GO, L4D2, Portal 2, and possibly a HL3. With that, and showing that the Linux gaming market share is growing, and fast, will make more publishers to invest money into Linux ports.

                    Awesome job, Valve!!!!

                      Working fast

                      Valve is working fast, we are rapidly getting more and more games.

                      I hope to soon see Portal 2.

                        CS:GO! I already own it on Windows, but can't bring myself to reboot just to play CS:GO when CS 1.6/CZ/S are only an application away. Also looking forward to HL2. I only played the first one of that game, so I'm eager to play the other episodes if/when they're available on Linux. Awesome work Valve!

                          Though I'm not complaining of course, since we get to have Linux ports of the games, Valve's interest IMO is not to make Linux relevant but to have their games well tested when they introduce the Steam Box. It needs to work 100% when they ship it, and a good way to do that is to drop their ports on us to iron out any rough edges.

                          But again: I'm not complaining :-P Sometimes ulterior motives can have awesome side effects.

                            I'll echo what others have said... I want Portal 2, CS:GO, and eventually HL2. I haven't managed to make time to finish Portal 2 yet, and my copy of CS:GO is sitting unused because I usually neglect to reboot to windows when I want to play something.

                            Now, if only Firaxis gets Civ 5 ported.... (I can dream, right?)

                              Isn't there like a huge Linux community in Russia? With Dota 2 ported, this could draw a lot of them,
                              given the "fame" their obsession with the game has.

                              Also, LoL was recently ported to Mac. If it could eventually come to Linux, that'd be fucking KILLER!
