Steam client coming to Linux with Left 4 Dead 2 as the first title

Ubuntu to be the first Linux-based OS to get Steam

Valve has confirmed that they are working on a Steam client for the Linux-based operating system Ubuntu.

As a nice extra bonus they are also knocking up a Linux-compatible version of Left 4 Dead 2 to debut alongside the new client.

Valve has a team of 11 developers working on Linux compatibility and the current plan is to create a client that is fully compatible with Ubuntu as well as a version of Left 4 Dead 2 that works as well as the Windows version.

They haven't announced any kind of release dates yet but you can keep up with their progress at the Steam'd Penguins blog over on the Valve website.

Thanks MCV.
