Steam on Linux

Postby fireraven on Wed Dec 12, 2012 9:39 pm

I've been awaiting this for a fair amount of time now and I'm still unsure as to how it will be stable. With all the different distributions of Linux that it might be hard to program games for Linux that work reliably across the board. My experiences with trying to game on Ubuntu were terrible. The applications were hit an miss, for instance Ryzom just flat out would not install, and even then I sometimes had to go hunting for some unknown codec or file package that I had no idea existed. I assume Steam will have something to naturalize this process, but if they do not I think it will end up turning off a lot of less technichal people.

On a separate tangent has anyone else been awaiting testing this out? Personally, I can't wait to see how well it works, and see how they plan on bringing in non-valve games.
