    So... it's happening...

    Not that it's that important, the old GoldSrc games run pretty well under Wine. But native Linux games are always Good News... still waiting for L4D2, though.

    Ok that came unexpected, I honestly expected to see their Source titles out first...

    Edit: it's not listed in the Linux games and the Store page claims it's Windows-only... Where did you get this from Micheal?

    This is really cool news, I didn't think they would bother with their really old Windows only titles. Awesome to see Valve are commited to get their whole library onto Linux, even if it is only because of their Steambox plans. Now I wish I picked up the Half-Life games during the holiday sale.

    I bought it in Steam and tested on my Arch desktop, it works.

    It's considered beta so I suppose that's why it's not listed in those areas. My short testing, it seemed to run fine.

    Nice little surprise this morning!

    Hmmm, I can't tell you where he got it from, but its on my games list and I just installed it. So its true. It shows up as "Half-life (Beta)".
