Steam for Linux

Steam for Linux

[REQUEST] Allow Steam login to 1 Linux and 1 Windows machine
As part of the slow but eventual transition from Windows to Linux gaming, I feel the shifting pains more often of late. I'm finding myself more often having a single-player game paused on my Linux gaming rig and having friends want me to join them in a multiplayer game that (currently) only runs on Windows. Every time the scenario arises, I have to exit the other game, shut down Steam on Linux, and log back into Steam on Windows, then launch the game in question. It would be much better if Steam allowed simultaneous support for such scenarios.

Being able to launch the same game from both clients is not necessary (and causes logistics problems), and could be explicitly locked to prevent it.
