Steam for Linux Leaves Beta

Valve announces the official release of Steam for Linux, supported by a Steam for Linux Community Hub and a sale where over 50 Linux titles are now 50-75% off. Here's word:

The Steam client is now available to download for free from the Ubuntu Software Center. Ubuntu is the most popular distribution of Linux used by millions of people globally and known for its well-designed, easy-to-use customer experience.

“The introduction of Steam to Ubuntu demonstrates growing demand for open systems from gamers and game developers,” said David Pitkin, Director of Consumer Applications at Canonical. “We expect a growing number of game developers to include Ubuntu among their target platforms. We’re looking forward to seeing AAA games developed with Ubuntu in mind as part of a multi-platform day and date release on Steam.”

Buying a Linux version doesn't give you access to the Windows version, right?

Edit - it seems that isn't true - you get access regardless of platform. That's how every site needs to do this. Microsoft, you want a 3 screen experience? Can't charge us for each screen. Or, at worst, you can only charge us a nominal fee for all 3 screens.

Please. This is Microsoft. Not only will they charge you separately for 3 screens, but they will charge you a fucking fee for having screen 1 talk to screen 2 and screen 2 talk to screen 3. They are the ones who invented the fucking words "Seat Licensing."
