Yesterday we reported on Proof In Steam's Mac Client Of Linux Support
as we received the bash launcher used by the closed-beta Steam on Mac OS X that showed support for Linux. Today there are yet more signs of Linux support when studying Valve's Mac OS X client.
When using the strings
command to find printable characters within the closed-beta Steam client binary on Mac OS X, there are more references to Linux. Below are a few references.
Assertion Failed: kv
More information (perhaps the best yet) is coming soon. Update:
For those thinking these Linux strings are related to just Steam's Linux dedicated server, there are also Linux references to be found within friendsui.dylib, gameoverlayui.dylib, and steamclient.dylib, among other files. Also note this file
on Steam's servers.
