Downloading now, servers seemed bogged down. They should have used torrents Imo. Thankfully people are uploading torrents http://steamdb.info/blog/35/

I'm fairly excited seeing as its a Linux distro and GNOME works. Apparently steam is just the "Big Box HD" for now. Already alot of useful FAQ's out and solutions to common problems.

Wanted to add that if your new to Linux i'd suggest holding off and reading up on it instead of diving in head first. The installer will format everything on your PC. Future versions will allow for partitions of Debian-Steam/PC (Windows) but unfortunately they are not there yet. Apologies for the wall of text just wanted to add that in.

Yeah I'm gonna do the same on my gaming PC but I use an old laptop to try out new builds like the steam one.

oh not to detail the thread but a leak got out that the winter/holiday sale for steam will start on the 19th through January 2nd so if your wanting to buy a game maybe hold off till the 19th and find it for 40‰-80‰ off heh. they tend to offer great deals during those sales. Same with the https://www.humblebundle.com/. can get 3+ games for whatever price you see as fair. You can designate how much of it goes to charity.

From what I understand no knowledge of linux, or even knowing that it's running linux, is necessary.  You just install it and it works.  I don't think you can even access a linux shell if you wanted to.

lol if they want to.  i'm sure they'll leave unhappy.
