Because it is absolutely true if you have a supported distro. Otherwise you're on your own of course. Same thing applies to windows. Try to run it on Windows 95...

I have several years of experience with Linux, and while it is usually necessary to install dependencies separately, Steam installation scripts are supposed to install all the packages required to run. Somehow installing 32bit dependencies got it past those errors (even though I have a 64bit system), but it's still got a segfault.
