Phoronix has recently gone on record to announce the existence of the popular gaming client Steam for Linux, complete with photo and video evidence to back up their claim. What we’re seeing in the photo above appears to be Left 4 Dead playing natively on a computer running Ubuntu.
Work appears to be in the early stages, but this is undoubtedly good news for the platform, which to date has seen little to no commercial interest, especially in the gaming industry. It’s unclear as to the intended release date, or even if it’ll actually ever be released at all, but rest easy Linux-users – if all goes well, you could soon be slaying zombies along with the rest of us.
Check out video evidence after the break.
