Sounds like a lot of conversations we are having here about Steam and Linux.

I think everyone is underestimating how many people are actually playing games in Linux. We may be small in comparison to Winblows gamers (which I am one of them) but could still be in the thousands.
That is still a LOT of sold games

I'm pleased to say I saw a difference. We are getting things done that will actually help our situation... well and good to discuss. But I'm going to play Black Mesa today!

With any luck I just may be playing Borderlands tomorrow. Good to talk, better to progress.":O}
