Steam For Linux Now Live
Valve has officially launched the long awaited Steam for the Linux operating system. After several months of beta-testing, the game client interface is now live.
Until February 21, Linux users can get more than 50 titles for a much as 75 percent off the retail price. Some featured games include Counter-Strike: Source for $5, World of Goo also for $5, and FTL: Faster Than Light for $2.50.
For some added incentive Valve is also giving any Linux user who purchases and plays Team Fortress 2 by March 1 a free in-game item. Appropriately themed, the prize will be a penguin named “Tux” who can be traded among players.
