    Let me rephrase that sentence: Trine is not initially released through the Linux client of Steam.

    Anyways, while I wouldn't expect anything of that to become public, Valve is probably going to announce that they are working on the Linux client privately to developers at the GDC this week.

    No, but before a release there is a Beta and before a Beta there's an announcement. It needs more than a month to do all of this.

    Hi guys, Joel from Frozenbyte here, I just quickly want to cut this short and say that our plans don't have anything to do with Valve, it's a totally separate thing.

    Anyhow, from a game developer perspective I'm sure support for Linux will rise in the coming years. The recent distros are becoming very easy to use, and general support for hardware seems quite good nowadays, and many basic apps have Linux versions or good alternatives. Personally I just built a silent Atom D525 computer and installed Ubuntu 10.10 on it as my new primary OS. (And if anyone's interested, the beta version of Trine Linux runs quite fine on the D525 + NVIDIA Ion gen 2, around 20 frames per second which is reasonably impressive to me all things considered.)

    So I'm all for a Steam Linux client, I hope it happens soon. That said, we don't have anything to do with that. Sorry to burst the hope bubble.

    This quote from a PC Authority article just sort of empathizes the importance of Steam i think. And microsoft really are a dead man walking imho, so in the bizarre chance Steam and the Source Engine do make their way to Linux... it'd be a huge coup.
    Microsoft and Nvidia abandon PC Gaming Alliance

    Industry body grows smaller and weaker as two more major players leave altogether, while AMD reduces involvement

    Ever since Microsoft turned its back on Windows gaming in favour of the closed Xbox Ecosystem, the platform has been crying out for a champion. The company occasionally gives nods towards a revived focus upon PC gaming, most recently with yet another relaunch for Games for Windows Live and a trio of upcoming PC games, but when it comes to throwing cash around the Xbox is the beneficiary.

    One could argue that Valve software has become a de-facto platform champion both with its Steam marketplace and its relentless innovation when it comes to its own games

    I guess d2kx knows something we don't?
    @michaellarabel well, he sure looks like it (okay, that wasn't very nice, I like him). But I can't believe the delay is a coding issue tbh
    that was tweeted by d2kx in reference to steam on linux.

    And here we are, almost a year later. I still have hopes, Michael. I visit your site frequently, hoping to see something.

    One thing that I would not have been able to predict last year: The PS3 will have Steam before Linux. Pretty wild, right?

    Come on, Steam for Linux!
