Filed under
Gaming

For those that didn't notice yet, the public Linux client for Desura is now available and it's out of the closed-beta process. You can now fetch some 65+ games for Linux from this Steam-like digital distribution platform.

The announcement was made on Desura.com following a two-month beta process.

Desura first launched for Microsoft Windows and then this past summer they began developing the Linux client with GTK+, etc. The Mac OS X client isn't yet out there, but the Linux client has made it.

One interesting item to note is that the Desura client is going to be open-sourced.
