    Phoronix: Script Makes It Easy To Deploy Steam On FreeBSD

    With a new script, it's possible to get Valve's Steam Linux game client running relatively well on FreeBSD...

    Cool. This may motivate me to give FreeBSD another try once the new version comes out, or perhaps even before that…

      If you don't have a NVIDIA card, you are probably better off waiting they finish their wrapper layer for porting linux open drivers

          Somewhat expected.

            Judging by a post by its creator, partially quoted below, the claim of "getting Valve's Steam Linux game client running relatively well on FreeBSD" does not equal getting the actyak games running relatively well:

            Work well only two games that I could run CS and CS:GO.

            The games that I was able to run, have video but no sound, they use Fmod library for audio output and Fmod not available for FreeBSD.

            It does not make sense to play the game without sound.
