Valve has fully launched their Linux client on Canonical's Ubuntu operating system from today.
The Steam client is available as a free download from the Ubuntu Software Centre and launches with over 50 titles available including Valve's free-to-play juggernaut Team Fortress 2.
To celebrate the launch Valve are having a mass sale with between 50 and 75 percent off Linux titles until the 21st of February.
Canonical's David Pitkin said, "The introduction of Steam to Ubuntu demonstrates growing demand for open systems from gamers and game developers. 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."
Steam works best on Ubuntu 12.04 or later running on Nvidia graphics hardware using the official Nvidia Ubuntu drivers.
