Steam for Linux

Steam games
I'm switching back to Linux Ubuntu 13.10 from windows 7 and curious on what games will still be compatible.
Also, I bought a game straight from the company before it was on steam, i believe, and I added it to steam but it doesn't recognize it as a steam game but as a third party game. How to fix this and make steam show I have bought it? Thanks! :)

Can't say about specific games on whether they'll work with Linux but their individual store pages should. How come you're moving to Linux from Windows?!?! Usually it's the other way around :P. And as for the game, did you add a non steam game to the library or activate a product on Steam?

Added a game called 7 days to die, from their website which they have now added to steam.
I am switching back to linux, I started out with windows 2000 which I hated, apple which sucks, windows 7 first operating system I liked and kind of do but companies are ruining it. Tried ubuntu linux and fell in love. Switched back to windows because I wasnt used to command line and wanted it to be only operating system on my hardrive...still trying to figure out how to remove windows but keep linux on it...but ya I love it but keeping it at dual boot so I can play all the games I bought. I found that linux is way more secure, faster and way better!

There are lots of guides on how to unistall Windows from a dual boot with Ubuntu.

Here's one from quidsup he has lots of tutorials and Linux reviews (Debian or Ubuntu based distros usually).

Make sure to backup all important files before you try this, just in case.

The best way to get rid of Windows and switch to Linux is by deleting all the partitions related to Windows under Ubuntu LIVE through gParted; then you just install Ubuntu as usual and let the drums roll! :D
