That's still not an official source. Just an edit of a wiki page. Anyone can create an account on there.

*waves fist at edit window.
The "(which is now confirmed)" is a link back to Phoronix's original story.

Just one more way to get page hits and ad revenues.

so which came 1st then, the telegraph story, or the Phoronix story??

I think once Valve gets 100% comfortable with distributing/supporting games on Mac, They will really focus on getting HL2 games and the steam client completely ready for Linux.
Most likely, Valve is going to pull a Blizzard and make a native Linux client then decide its not worth supporting and never release it... I hope that doesn't happen!

Which uses Phoronix as "confirmation" which brings us back to the current situation; is Phoronix hyping a proof-of-concept or will something actually come out at the end of (presumably) northern hemisphere summer?

I doubt it. They dislike Linux. For hosting games they had to accept it since Unix is simply the standard on server systems but what goes for the client they showed clearly they hate Linux. It's astonishing they even experimented with a client but that's just the front-end (steam).

Hi guys. I'm new here.
If U really want to know if Steam is coming to Linux see:
And look at 4-th point in RESPONSIBILITIES
I think this solves all questions.

Svartalf, you should apply! Your experience of porting games to linux must be a huge differential, right?
