LINUX GAMING --
There are about 2,000 Steam Linux games that are published and working (1,999 as of right now), granted a majority of them are indie games and only about a fifth of the games available for Steam on Windows or less than half of the number of games available for OS X.

According to SteamDB.info, there are 1,999 confirmed working games for Steam on Linux as of right now. It will certainly pass 2,000 this week if not today; Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II -- is one of the games coming out for Linux this week.

From the Steam Store Search for Linux games, nearly 2,700 games are listed but that includes unreleased titles and other non-working Linux options.
