Hey guys, I'm not sure if this is off-topic for Ubuntu-UK but it relates to
Ubuntu and I think it would be of some interest to you, just as it was to
myself. As fellow /.ers may have heard, the Windows demo version of Left 4

So what does this mean for Ubuntu and GNU/Linux itself? Well, a port of such
a major client in the games industry (Steam) can only be good for us
Linuxers since it will bring more attention to our platforms because they
will want to be able in theory to provide support too for their games if
their competitors are. What are your views on this? Are you a major gamer
too who cannot wait for Steam to port or are you just a person who is happy
for any such port even if it doesn't affect you?
