Here's the latest in the steaming excitement concerning Valve's Source Engine and Steam client coming to Linux.

Over the weekend an email was sent in by a Phoronix reader, Joe Davinson, about an email exchange he had with Gabe Newell of Valve. Below is the email screenshot where he says "Yes" to "Will the Linux version of the Steam client be released to the public before the end of this year?"

Valve's Gabe Says "Yes" To Steam Linux This Year

This isn't news at all to me, but unfortunately back when I was in Bellevue they asked me to not comment more specifically on their targeted release schedule, so for now you will just have to wait. But what this email confirms for release plans by end of year is already quite accomodating compared to what I was told. Maybe though Valve will finally provide public Linux comments from the E3 Expo?

If you missed the earlier exclusive Phoronix coverage of Valve games and their distribution client coming to Linux, see: Valve's Gabe Newell Talks Linux Steam Client, Source Engine, A Video Of The Source Engine On Ubuntu Linux, and A Special Linux Delivery At Valve Software. If you missed it, they're also still trying to recruit highly-skilled Linux developers.
