It’s official. Linux (and more importantly), Ubuntu will be getting an official steam client and support in the upcoming months. Coming from Valve’s own (newly started) Valve Linux Team blog, the team had the following to say:

After successfully porting L4D2 to Ubuntu, interest grew within Valve and, as a result, the team and projects we were working on also grew. Currently, our focus is on the following projects:

  • getting the Steam client onto Linux with full functionality
  • optimizing a version of L4D2 running at a high frame rate with OpenGL
  • porting additional Valve titles

You can read more about what’s coming up for Ubuntu and the Linux world with steam at the blog.
