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.

To download the free Stream client, go through the Ubunto Software Center. For more information about Steam for Linux, visit Valve’s community page.
