The library will grow with time, obviously, but that's not going to be any different on the Steam box when compared to Linux
I'm still not too impressed with AMD at the moment but they're getting their act together while Steam is still in a beta state. I'll be pretty disappointed if they continue in the direction they've been going lately when it comes to developing their Linux drivers even after Steam has officially released and the Steam box becomes a reality.
Originally posted by Muffinabus:In reference to AMD improving their Linux drivers I've seen some slight improvements via the beta drivers over the month or so that they had them coming out. The 12.11 beta drivers were crap. Awful TF2 framerates, awful SS3 framerates, etc. 12.11 beta8 came out and while the release notes noted some source engine improvements there was an issue with the driver that caused Steam not to start. So then beta11 was a huge improvement on my end.
