If you have been patiently waiting for Valve’s Steam gaming network to arrive on Linux computers, you will be pleased to learn that Valve has launched a new blog by the Valve Linux Team to keep you up-to-date with progress.
In its first post, Valve has announced they are currently moving the Steam client to Ubuntu 12.04, and the first game that will be available on the Linux Steam client will be Left 4 Dead 2.
Valve are now working to improve the performance of the Linux Left 4 Dead 2 Steam game which now runs natively on Ubuntu 12.04, Valve explains.
“The goal of the Steam client project is a fully-featured Steam client running on Ubuntu 12.04. We’ve made good progress this year and now have the Steam client running on Ubuntu with all major features available. We’re still giving attention and effort to minor features but it’s a good experience at the moment. In the near future, we will be setting up an internal beta focusing on the auto-update experience and compatibility testing.”
