Half-Life OS X and Linux Betas Released

A note from last week on penguin-centric Phoronix reveals that Valve has made a low-key release of a Linux edition of the original Half-Life, saying this is still considered a beta, which may explain why the Steam page for the classic first-person shooter still only shows Windows support. Cult of Mac adds that the game has likewise received an OS X edition, which is also not listed, but available in the library of those who own the game. Thanks Polygon.

Im betting Windows7 will be the last Microsoft OS that will grace my PC.
Or if MS does what they've done in the past... Every other windows release sux, the other ones are much better.

Vista was bleh, 7 was good. 98SE was good, ME was ugh, and XP was great.

Just depends if they stick with what is already failing or not. They doubled down on xbox 360 when xbox 1 failed hard moneywise (lost them billions overall, which I guess they counted as cost of entering market). And in the end, I believe it paid off. So if MS looks at sticking with trying to wall people into the MS app store, they may well double down on the next windows and do something like lock out desktop mode entirely. If MS they start making a bunch from the app store, or think they can make a bunch of they do it, they will probably do it. Or maybe they will come to their senses and make the metro interface a little more friendly and give easier access to desktop.
