    Default Steam on linux mentioned by Steam moderator

    I was reading the day of defeat source forums yesterday, theres a big patch comming for the game and one of the admins "fuzzdad" (who claims to know ppl "on the inside") posted an update on the patch which also included the following
    I know they are working on the linux port and in the past that was always one of the last items to complete. I still don't have a release date but I can smell more haiku's are in the wind.

    Sounds good. But what are they going to distribute on Steam? *chuckles*

    Maybe they start with the games that have been ported already, i.e Quake and Doom series, Unreal Tournament and UT 2004...
    Maybe he is only referring to Linux dedicated server.

    Well, Half-Life and all of the Orage Box games already have an OpenGL renderer courtesy of the PS3 port, so those could also be good candidates to be available.

    Wow, thanks for the news. Didn't they ban people before for mentioning linux? (not entirely their fault, I've seen some people be extremely annoying).

    Let's just hope this isn't just hot steam blowing at us. I'd really like a digital medium of distribution on Linux. It's just that... well, you have some other development house who promised a Linux port and hasn't delivered yet.

    Well, their game is available on Steam as well

    At any rate, I think despite how much enthusiastic we all are, I think it is safe to say that many (if not all) of us are taking this with a big grain of salt. And though enthusiastic, are in no way as vocal as with other titles in the past.

    The post in the Steam forums reads as he means DoD: S being ported, not Steam directly. So I'll guess the Valve games will be avaible from launch.

    Thats what I'm hoping...no more booting into Windows. OTOH someone on the same forum mentioned the server being ported but they got that already, dont they?

    And yes, a big grain of salt is recommended when linux is mentioned on non-linux forums IMHO. But I still got my hopes up high though....

    I think it's more a "when?" than a "will?" question.
