    Overall that?s a big mistake because: I?m not a Troll I really use the radeon driver and i really tried to play teamfortress2.

    The others you call animal names are really strange there is a pirate windows version and they also can pirate windows it just makes no sense to use a legal version of a free operating system "Linux" to use pirate software only to not pirate windows.

    The real point is what I say makes sense! what the pirate Troll says make no "sense" at all.

    "If you really acted the way you thought was right"

    The only person in the world you have to explain your acting is your self.

    For all the other persons there are so many good Psychology books it does not worth it to explain these people anything.

    If you want to know why people act like humans buy Psychology books on Amazon and don't waste my time on that.

    "Advocating copyright infringement just makes you look like a hypocrite when you support the GPL! What gives?"

    In my point of view you are wrong here just because the GPL as a license is only there because the copyright law is broken!

    In a word without self-justice closed source software would be against the law because its a kind of self-justice.

    On the other side all people who use your "code" would pay for your code not because of self-justice but because of real justice.

    Because of this the GPL is only to fix broken copyright law!

    Just fix the copyright law and no one ever do have the need for GPL at all.

    Paypal

    Just use paypal, it supports direct debit from a non credit carded bank account. Honestly though, who cares if a kid without a credit card can't buy from steam? there are so many ways they can get the item it's ridiculous. More importantly Steam on Linux will eventually lead to more game devs on Linux, more tools on linux, and more hobbyists making open source games on Linux. Once the tools come over people will start making more content. Don't believe me? I used to make game mods all the time, and I stopped when I was trying to mod an open source engine because there just weren't any tools to do the graphics on Linux. Blender is not a replacement for Caligari TrueSpace in my workflow. I tried for ages to compensate but TrueSpace just had the only modelling system I could understand naturally. This wa the same even for Maya and 3DS Max. I couldn't use them, but I could use TrueSpace. This is what I've been trying to impress on Linux people for years. Blender can't substitute an application like that because you get used to a workflow and the new interface just doesn't feel right. I even tried to rewrite TrueSpace on Linux as an application so I could have my workflow back, but writing a 3D modeller is really hard. More Games/Tools on Linux can only be a good thing for Linux gaming.

    That's correct but you should disable the Steam Guard then, otherwise it is a bit annoying when you always needs a confirmation email.

    I hope so too. I don't really care about DRM. I'm not gonna install the games on every computer I see, just on the one I will be playing on, so what's the matter. More important is to support this tentative, pay for the games and use steam. Valve won't support something that is not worth the effort and money the put in.
    And you can install steam games on more then one pc. You can only start one at a time though.

    Yes, piracy is rampant here, but the software companies, *cough* microsoft *cough*, do not make it easy to cheaply manage your licenses.

    HOW DOES A KID, or anyone really, who doesn't have a bank account ergo a visa or a mastercard, or who really doesn't want to own credit cards buy shit from steam???
    Easy, "Daddy can you type in your credit card number?"

    Thank you, I agree 100%

    Who is to blame for teamfortress 2 not running (well ) on opensource drivers ?
    He should stay honest, it's not Valve fault.

    And there is another reason why I get fed up with this wining about open source.

    After a windows install, one of the first things I do, is install the drivers from nvidia or amd.
    I need them if I want to game.

    I do not use openSUSE because its opensource. That is a plus, but its not the reason to use it.

    Thank to Valve we finally are getting drivers that can compare to the ones on windows, that is far more important to me then anything else.

    Amd has suddenly a place to report problems. because of Valve and promised to Valve that they would listen.

    Then some people come here and tell Valve to go fuck themselves....

    Blaming a company that is investing allot of money for Linux.
    If they only wanted to make a console, they did not have to release steam for linux.

    The fair thing would be a try before you buy model, not with a demo, but the WHOLE GAME for 24 hours. The FULL version. Let the client appraise the quality of game and make his choice if he wants to support you or not. Let him judge if the price you ask is fair or not.
    Riiight...

    I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that you may not know anyone else who has recently purchased some games on steam. If so, then would you like my guest passes to:
    Counter-Strike: Source
    Killing Floor
    Red Orchestra Ostfront 41-45

    Yeah, full versions that you get to try for free for a limited time to see if you want to buy them... Some more than 24 hours.

    If you seriously do not know that you can get that kind of offer on steam, then PM me and I'll send you the guest passes.

    You see, some of us actually support that kind of gaming model aswell. Steam may not be utopia, but it's a hell of a lot better then most alternatives.

    I was so wrong.
    Well, blanket statements and assumptions are usually a bad idea. For what it's worth, my ignore list has racked up a few more entries. When someone can't even properly spell their swear words, I take that as an indicator that I should probably cut off communication.
