    Default Wonderful news!

    That's awesome news!

    Now I really can't wait for Counter Strike: Global Offensive. Stopped playing after 30 hours on windows, as I wanted to play on Ubuntu back when it first came out. Couldn't get it to work in Wine with AMD drivers.
    This is really something to look forward to!

    CS:S is soooo much better native, works nicely out of the box. I'm using the AMD prop legacy driver, which for the first time doesn't crash all the time . I was previously only able to play with the open source drivers ~ I will still try them next and see how they handle it.

    I still haven't quite gotten TF2 to work properly... it's so close, but it's also much slower to load than CS:S.

    Plays great, too! I haven't really played Source seriously in years, can't wait for GO but Source is still better than nothing. Impressive cadence too, HL1/CS just came out!

    Awesome Valve!

    When they released CS 1.6 for Linux I bought it again and started playing for the first time in years. Awesome game, really enjoying it (even though the last update broke the sound :-/).
    I never played much of CS:S in the past, so I'm more than happy to buy this one as well. Can't wait to play! (and I really can't wait to play CS:GO, which i hope is on the way!)

    I guess Half-Life and CS 1.6 is US only or something like that. 'Cos I don't get them in my list. CS:Source though, I can install.

    I don't actually play Counter-Strike of any kind (though if they have a sale and they are really cheap I may be tempted) but this makes me so very happy. Throughout the Steam Linux beta I've noticed how many fellow users have been wanting a port of this, so it's great news and a great sign. Valve's Linux team are doing a great job.

    Define cheap? I bought the lot of them for $29 US. I actually owned CS but wanted to show my love for Linux just bought them all considering it was only ~10 more than CS:GO by itself.

    This sucks, wish this came out while I was waiting for TESV-Dragonborn (PlayOnLinux with steam version works flawless)... Now my spare time is shot to shit.
