    Any chance we’ll see steam linux running on PC-BSD?

    now that was interesting. at the moment i am trying to find out as much about 3D as i can. would you believe, i cannot play games?

    the talk through is easy on me, thanks.

    i am looking forward to finding a 3D desktop if nothing else except, perhaps, for the 3D screen saver.

    saw a thread on 3d somewhere else on here….

    not a subject that has a lot of experts. if i was good enough it would be fun to code graphs and things CAD in 3D.

    thanks again josh.

    I was able to run a larger amount of games on steam for wine than I was for steam for linux. I was able to run basically all of my game library but 2 games vs only a handful in steam for linux. Which left me wanting to run steam under wine anyway.

    If you think about it even if steam for linux worked it would still be emulated the same way that wine would emulate through the linuxulator via syscall translation.

      True, much more (almost any, if You invest some hard working) games can run on Steam(wine) than on Steam (native) Linux.
      But, You can have both of them installed on same system! Of course, not running both of Steams in same time 😉
