    I get that, and that's fair enough, I'm just saying there's no need to boot into Windows for those games now, that's all.

    After all this game universe laid the foundation to Valve's success.

    Btw, I'd love to play through HL2 + Episodes again on Linux before HL3 hits the streets.
    Don't worry, with Valve time you'll make in time to finish it on hard, with crowbar only, running backwards. :P

    Expect most/all Valve Source-based games to be ported, yes.

    May seem like a petty complaint, but it does bug me.

    As far as Skyrim goes, it's playable under wine with pretty much zero mucking around. Can't say I know about CS:GO's status though.
    Skyrim V works well with wine > 1.5.1x
