For Steam/Steam Title news, rumours, and whatnot. (for people who actually like Steam or are interested in it)
Seeing as Steam is getting (has gotten already?) a Mac OSX port (and are going to treat the Mac as a "tier 1" gaming platform for Steam releases) and all of Valve's Source Engine games are ported to OpenGL it seems like a no-brainer that Linux won't be long to join the supported OS's list. Especially with some of the new features of the new Steam UI coming out soon (currently in beta that you can freely take part in). Like this feature:
* Now using a WebKit based rendering engine for the client and in-game overlay web browsing components (replacing Internet Explorer)[/quote]
Not requiring Internet Explorer certainly opens up the realm of possibility for Linux operation. Obviously it was needed for Mac operation. Add that to the many rumours that have been circulating over the years of people being hired at Valve to port Valve's games to Linux makes the future of gaming for Linux users very bright indeed.
By the way, they also said that there won't be any extra charge for playing Steam games on either the PC or Mac. And they're synced together so if you acquire any achievements or scores on MP games or whatnot it will all be reflected on your account regardless of what platform you play on. Neat.
