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.”

I thought Linux was the choice OS of those wishing to avoid DRM, closed systems and proprietary software.

What's next for Ubuntu, the Metro interface? Oh wait...

You thought wrong. Even Richard Stallman (creator of GNU and the Free Software Foundation) has said that Steam on Linux is a good thing.

Entertainment software isn't the same as production software that you'd use to run a server farm.
