Steam for Linux Made Public
In case you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last few months, Steam has been porting its client over to GNU/Linux, a free and open source operating system, with the help of a closed beta program. Until now, only a few thousand users were allowed to participate, but today Steam has opened the client publicly. Currently there are only a handful of games available on the client, as they have to be ported to the operating system to work. Some of those games include Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Killing Floor, and Valve’s own Team Fortress 2. Along with the public release, Steam claims they will now be tracking bugs via GitHub. A download for the Steam for Linux Beta client can be found here, and more information on the release can be found here.
