Originally posted by +ULFBERH+T:Steam does have a beta Linux client. However, the game itself has to be ported to Linux.If you want to run borderlands 2, you will need to use wine to install windows version of steam. There is no native Linux version of borderlands 2.

I know a lot of the "other" classification probably falls in with the other Ubuntu based distros. I'm sure once it gets closer to an official release will see the SteamBox getting ready to ship. And maybe then devs will start to really jump on board. I for one will be getting a SteamBox even if i don't plan to use it much, just to show my support for Valve.
Originally posted by iamoverrated:...Will they port it? It's anyone's guess. I'd love to see it on Linux, it's the one thing that's stopped me from buying it (as well as many other games). If they don't support my platform, why buy their products?
