Steam for Linux is now in Open Beta!!!
« on: February 02, 2013, 08:33:52 pm »
So I am downloading Team fortress 2 right now on my Peppermint 3 distro.

Note: if anyone is interest you have to use a ubuntu based distro. Debian may work but it is not guaranteed.

We can now start doing some main stream linux gaming. Who is in?

Also shall I put together a Linux forum UK group on steam so we can all play games together?

Cheers,

GEARHEAD

p.s. my steam account name is: GEARHEAD_TI

so feel free to add me :)

Time to kill my GFX card. ;D
If you try to look through Windows, you can see what the person is doing.
If you try to look through a Penguin, it WILL bite you.

Hopefully the new GFX driver coming out of AMD and NVIDIA (hiss) should help the gaming on Linux push.

I will start a Linux Forums UK .org group tonight for those who are interested.

I am at work at the moment but does anyone know if there is a Team Fortress 2 Server application for linux?
