Steam Linux first impressions

Filed under
Gaming

I am most mightily pleased that I was chosen to participate in the Steam Linux Beta program. I've received my email just days ago, and since, I've been working hard on getting the Steam client installed, tested and first screenshots prepared.

This is a beginning of a fabulous journey, and I intend to enjoy every minute of it. But we will keep it humble. First, I will show you how to install the client software and configure it properly, then we will talk about the interface, the good and the bad, user profile settings and cross-platform compatibility, and finally take a look at some of the games available in the Linux store. Worry not, we will have a handful of detailed game reviews, too. And then, we will also have several tutorials designed to help users get around common problems of using the beta client.

Follow me.
