,----[ Quote ]
| Valve Corporation has today rolled out 
| their Steam Mac OS X client to the general 
| public and confirmed something we have 
| been reporting for two years: the Steam 
| content delivery platform and Source 
| Engine are coming to Linux. This news is 
| coming days after we discovered proof in 
| Steam's Mac OS X Client of Linux support 
| and subsequently found more Linux 
| references and even the unreleased Steam 
| Linux client. The day has finally come and 
| Linux gamers around the world have a 
| reason to rejoice, as this is the biggest 
| news for the Linux gaming community that 
| sees very few tier-one titles.

| future is looking bright.
