Steam for Linux?

Now I know Valve has denied having a Linux version of their game platform (Steam) in the works, but a lot of bloggers are skeptical, and with good reason. On Steam’s website there’s a job offer. They’re looking for a Lead Software Engineer, and amongst the responsibilities listed, I spotted:

Manage the operation of large clusters of machines running both Windows and Linux in a highly available system.

and

Port Windows-based games to the Linux platform.

You can’t argue with that folks. If you don’t believe me, check it out for yourself.

    You’ve just revealed why a Linux Steam client doesn’t exist. They need someone to port Windows games to Linux. Once this job opening is filled, the Linux masses will get their Steam!
