    Sorry i am a troll, but i wont claim if Source come to linux.
    HL2 runs on Wine. Perfectly, I might add. I don't even have Windows, and I played the entire orange box without problems.

    I was talking about SourceEngine games like HL?, CS:S, TF2...

    And anything thats not based on these Engine is not related to Valve.

    Dopehouse what games where you playing.I know what I'm saying when I sad no more LAN party's.My friend and me tried playing with steam.One day in our dorm room we had no access to internet and guess what we couldn't play any of our games in LAN although we where just 2 feet apart from each other.FREAKING EPIC FAIL.And now there is a talk that all save-games go to one server,steam's server(maybe there already is I don't know).Windows live games and that crap already does that but it gives you option to save it on your PC,but it's just a time until they change their mind's in Mic...

    I guess this all depends on the exact game you are talking about.

    Even in Germany there are many rural areas without broadband internet connections...
    You seem to find a lot of people not worth playing PC games.

Let's play some Face-Earth!" and there you go. With Steam all have to first do a hail-to-valve dance to satisfy the gods and if they are lucky they are allowed to play together after messing with their steam clients for ages :P
    Fair enough. I thought that was where things were going on that remark- but I wanted clarification.
