No Linux Steam - Really

The vocal Linux community has been asking Valve for a Linux native Steam client for some time now, but Valve has stated this was not to be, saying simply in their FAQ: "The Steam Client is strictly a Windows application, and there are no current plans to create a native Linux Steam Client at this time." Perhaps inspired by the hope provided by "no current plans" and "at this time," Linux fans have continued inquiring about this, leading to a post on the Steam Users Forums that says Valve's stance on this issue has been stated repeatedly, and "The next person who posts a new thread on this issue will be banned." This has inspired a heated discussion on Digg (thanks Ant) that seems pretty well divided between those who feel this is a disservice to the community, and those who are more sympathetic to Valve's position. Many posts repeat the salient point that a native Linux Steam client will not do anything to help Windows games run under Linux without emulation anyway.
