Steam to be available on Linux in the future?

http://www.valvesoftware.com/job-SenSoftEngineer.html

Look closely at the job requirements. It would seem Valve might be in the process of making a Linux-based Steam client. Thoughts?

doubtful. Looks like standard req's for any tech job. A good majority of back-end servers, storage, and file sharing servers are all linux.

Mind you it is available on Mac...

Port Windows-based games to the Linux platform.

On a slightly unrelated note, steam mostly works under wine. The problem is getting the games (by this I mostly mean getting directx and gpu drivers) to work properly.

Buckshot Moose even had ff 2.0 working with the right (8800 I believe) card.

We are talking about Valve, right? I remember reading shortly before Steam for Mac was released that Steam for Linux was in the works. That was like... 2 years ago.

Just saw an announcement that Steam will soon be available on certain smartphones, too.
