Steam for Fedora
I recently got into Linux and I'm loving it so far, but I'm quite disappointed to realize that it's only for Debian-style Linux. When if ever could we expect Valve to reach out to Fedora and OpenSUSE users like myself?

The community already has versions for Fedora and OpenSUSE. Suggest you swing by the Steam for Linux forum for details.

I just browsed the pages and I didn't find anything relative. Could you give me a link?

Fuduntu is a distro based on fedora, it has Steam on its repository. Which means you really will find it easy. try this: http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2013/02/19/install-steam-client-on-fedora-18/
By the way, I use a debian based distro, and really, YUM looks really a bad package system after wenting to debian, I know is a personal thing but YUM was terrible slow when I used it.

There is a Steam package for Slackware, which doesn't even have a package manager. I'd be utterly shocked if there wasn't a package available for Fedora... You need to look at their repo, or the Fedora forums.

This was on another thread I was reading yesterday.

BTW, the openSUSE folks have been talking to the Valve lawyers and have official permission to create a SUSE package of steam. The license was amended specifically to allow distribution maintainers for Arch, SUSE, Fedora, and others to create Steam packages.
