Running Steam for Linux and Steam for Windows (in WINE) at the same time?
Is it possible? Will being logged in twice log out one of them, or flag my account somehow?

I ask mainly because my video card does well with WINE and Civilization V works in WINE, so I was thinking of playing some Civ V, but don't really feel like logging out of Steam for Linux.

I'm pretty sure multiple logins aren't allowed. The first login will be automatically logged off when you complete the second login. I haven't personally tested this however. My comment is based on reports read in various Steam forums.

When in doubt, logout.

You can run both clients at the same time, but to do it I kept one offline. If you love the faff, you can create a link from Steam for Linux to launch a Wine-d up Steam game.

Good point. :)

I put Steam for Linux offline after I finished installing the native stuff I wanted to play, then made a shell script to launch windows Steam under wine, and made a .desktop file for Steam for Linux for that shellscript.

tl;dr, I now have an entry in my Steam for Linux called "Steam for Windows under WINE" :P

I can launch them simultaneously, but logging into one causes a force logout of the other. Nothing to really worry about. Sometimes I get confused since they look identical and I have the same games installed in each, plus a few extra under Wine... ("Where the heck is Global Offensive???", oh I'm on Native...)

Hopefully CS:GO will show up soon and I can be gone with Steam-on-wine.
