Steam & Left 4 Dead 2 Officially Coming To Linux

 

Well, it’s about bloody time Valve decided to make its’ way to the Ubuntu Linux operating system.

According to the blog, Valve has managed to get Left 4 Dead 2 running natively on Ubuntu 12.04 with OpenGL. Although the performance isn’t quite up to snuff with its bigger Windows brother, Valve is working hard to bring the performance to relatively equal terms.

But don’t throw away your bottle of Wine just yet, just because Steam is coming to Linux, doesn’t mean every game will come along with it. In fact, Valve has only announced compatibility with Ubuntu, which is one of the more popular Linux distros on the market.

Now, what does this mean for us Team Fortress 2 lovers? Well, it means we’ll soon get to wear a penguin on our head. It’ll be the Earbud fiasco all over again….and I can’t wait!

    Dota2 it bettr make it free.. i guess it ll have a lotta bugs till a couple of years. But many wont agree cmrnaoipg dota 1 with 2.. coz a history cannot be recreated. better make it free r price it for 100$ not more than dat is worth it.. u neva created it, i was stolen idea just an increase of graphics. EA spends much more time in makin up crysis 2 for more than 2 years with imba graphic, just see wat happened to it cmrnaoipg with 1. same problem will occurs here. i bet u . wat eva u do to prevent frm piracy u bitches cant stop it. der r many games wich valve release r cracked in d way dat it neva links to steam server. so d day it releases d nxt hour v guyz ll earn n piracy .. roflVA:F [1.9.11_1134]please wait…
