"Valve has finally released Steam for Linux. Although some of the 57 games listed on the Linux Steam site are previously released from the Humble Bundles, there are others which should provide adequate entertainment for anyone bored with the HB games. Among the games listed, many at deep discounts of 50%-75% off, are HalfLife, CounterStrke Source and Serious Sam 3. Hopefully Valve will keep the ports coming as rumor has it that Left 4 Dead had been ported at least for developers."

Not certain I trust anything from Valve to be spyware free. So much for Linux. It's Ubuntu based, that's frightening enough.
I had probs with my laptop after the the last Ubuntu kernel upgrade, have an Optimus NVIDIA card that took a healthy shït (the one Linnus Torvalds told NVIDIA to "ƒück themselves" over lol.gif)
I'm in the process of setting up a home LAN server so Octo and I can play Dayz, that's my immediate goal.
I'm staying away from Linux for a while. Kinda messed up, I had photoshop running pretty damn good on wine when my last upgrade knocked me back to the stoneage.
