There's a good reason for hl1 mods : Counterstrike 1.6 is better than all the follow-ups, and my 7600GT with driver 304.84 won't run any Source game. Sadly no one plays the original DoD.

Another problem is I made the mistake to buy the hl1 mods on a separate account, this could be useful but to switch account you have to fully enter name and password ; to have the option to choose account on startup the last used account name is written in the field already but you have to enter password. No remembering the password, as when you just use a single account.
I would like to click account one, or account two, then click "login" and be done but Valve makes it painful.
I don't even touch my first account where there are a few games I've never played (Penumbra etc., Steel Storm) but no Counterstrike, if I want to rid of the hassle I'm forced to buy Counterstrike 1 again, but I don't want to do that at full price (10 euros). I don't know when it will be at 3.x euros again. So in the end I very rarely launch Steam.

So ask Valve to merge the 2 accounts. If you can display that you own both and both are tied to the same charge card then it should be a non issue.

A bit of a long shot I guess...
Worst thing ever.. for my productivity
My productivity has dropped by more than 80% since hl2 hit on steam4linux.
The forced rebooting in windows kept me from playing too many games... and now my productivity's gone
On a positive note, these ports are awesome: graphics are on par with windows (triple-head does not work, but that's just nitpicking), saves sync crossplatform and no more freakin' rebooting (ever!).
I hope they release a Steam static binary with all dependencies included, that would make things extremely simple for non-Ubuntu users.
