    Can't agree more on point 4. I own a GTX 660 so the ATI problems I left behind last year.

    The top shelf games they are porting are mostly old titles that the essence has all but dried up in. New games should be new releases.

    The problem is game developers need solid standards for graphics and sound. You either do this with wrappers, or the distributors need to concrete standard in with modern able drivers and routines. Ubuntu's Mir maybe the preferred choice for developers coming from other platforms.

    I'd put money on it mostly being numbers 3 and 4 from that list, with an emphasis on 3. I've got plenty of Linux games on Steam to play right now, but I wish that HL2, Portal 1/2, and CS:GO were released. Well, that and Civ 5.

    I've got a radeon 6850 w/ r600g on a phenom II x6 1055t, and TF2 runs just fine on my machine (at 1920x1200). Most of the other games I've got installed are less demanding than that. But then, the most graphically intensive games I own are GS:GO, BF:BC2, Borderlands 1, or GRID. I have a suspicion that half of those games would perform acceptably if released in Linux w/ OpenGL.

    My biggest problem at the moment is actually Skype. I get some nasty audio distortion on my system when I use Skype for voice chat, which prevents me from using it during my TF2 sessions.

    My Steam list in Linux is very short compared to my Windows list... I've bought a lot of Linux-friendly indie games in the bundle sales - but the replay value is lower compared to the likes of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. or the Half-Life 2 series... qed

    I would fire up Steam under Linux if I could play Black Mesa Source and HL2 (+episodes), etc.

    Plus you got Tomb Raider and Bioshock Inf. that just came out ... Trying to get Tomb Raider to Wine as we speak I have little hope of Bioshock working... Oh well when you get the games for free.

    If you want people to come to your fast food outlet, then make sure there are items on the menu.

    Get the analogy...
    Spiced chicken (HL2, EP1, EP2, L4D2, CS:GO) is coming soon, I hope.

    Yeah I played thew most of my Linux games last month so this month I have mainly been gaming from windows, I do expect that I will be playing some bastion in April and hopefully l4d2 will be out for Linux once I am done with that.

    Thanks for breaking, Valve.
    Ahem. What do you have? Update / upgrade your OS and you'll be fine.

    It is shipping it by itself through the Steam Runtime. You don't need it installed.
