Steam’s Linux client, which is designed for use with Ubuntu, now boasts support for 93 titles and DLC packages, including Crusader Kings II, Serous Sam 3, FTL, Waveform, Trine 2 and Dungeons of Dredmor.

Thanks, PC Gamer.

    It still needs atleast some good AAA titles to get me just a bit interested in it…

    Why don’t Valve just go the full hog and bring out their own Steam OS. Probs using a linux base, I’m sure it could be done. Probably wouldn’t use it myself but it would cut out a lot of unnecessary bollocks.

    This Linux thing is picking up steam – no pun intended – now by the sounds of things. I agree with Talkar though, Valve need to stick a half dozen high profile titles on there to make it stick. Far Cry 3, Borderlands 2, Bioshock Infinite, Dead Space 2, Fez…
