Linux gets Steam…y

Jul 17th, 2012

Linux has always been the love of many nerds, however, Linux in general has lacked something rather large: gaming. Ubuntu has attempted many tactics when it comes to gaming, in particular releasing their own app store with a dedicated gaming section. Sadly, this has been the best solution to Linux gaming… until now. Server admins and nerds alike can now rejoice as Steam arrives from the magical gateway that is the Internet (let’s hope Verizon doesn’t censor it).

The initial offerings may be limited to games from Valve, as Steam attempts to work out licensing with other publishers. This is due to Linux being an open-source platform, allowing for DRM issues, hopefully these issues will be resolved with haste… better yet, eliminate DRM. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
