i kinda wait to try this out.. i wonder how they are going to do this.. like native Steam install.. but then i wonder if you could still install other games that aren't native to linux and just run it thru wine or something... for example Steam has a lot of games on there.. they aren't possibly all go linux can they?

Theoretically anything with the Source engine can, which is a big list.

I have been runing the steam update for dedicated server several years now...
Does this mean I'll actually have a GUI for steam in Linux?
I would enjoy that.... now where is the list of games that will run?
