  • RE: Valve: Left 4 Dead 2 Runs Faster on Linux than Windows 7

    «Too bad there's 1) no proof of this and 2) no test specs. For all we know that linux system could've been running a far more beasty GPU and CPU.» 1) depends, JvanHummel , upon what one is willing to accept as proof. As regards 2), there are indeed specs, available here : http://blogs...

  • RE: Valve: Left 4 Dead 2 Runs Faster on Linux than Windows 7

    I'm no gamer and cannot address this issue directly, but I can say that generally speaking, identical applications that can run on both platforms run faster and more smoothly on 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 on my dualboot machine with Ubuntu and (64-bit) Windows 7 Pro. So I'm not particularly surprised...

  • Re: Counterstrike Source Overhaul

    Yeah, I'm hoping the same thing but trying to keep my expectations in check. Valve's silence (rather than outright denial) plus the partially-functioning alpha version of Steam for Linux found on their site shows that at least they're considering it. They probably don't want to commit...

  • RE: Valve Introduces Left 4 Dead 2: The Passing DLC, New Weekly "Mutations"

    [quote user="bob_on_the_cob"]All of them Valve included would much rather you buy the game again. [/quote] My argument to Valve on this was that there's no profit in that logic because most people won't buy another copy of a game they already own and are not actively playing. And, the...

  • RE: Valve Introduces Left 4 Dead 2: The Passing DLC, New Weekly "Mutations"

    [quote user="recoveringknowitall"] Great idea! Don't keep quiet about it... is there a place/person to whom you can submit this idea? [/quote] I wasn't going to, but I did it just for you. :) After looking around, I submitted it to the two places where I hope it might get noticed. First...

  • RE: Valve Introduces Left 4 Dead 2: The Passing DLC, New Weekly "Mutations"

    Sorry I didn't get to play L4D with you and your bud yesterday Bob. I was letting my son use my account to play Portal at the time you guys got online. That's the one bad thing about Steam: There's no way to transfer games. I've already beat Portal, but I can either a) buy it again for...

  • Re: Steam for Linux for real this time?

    Yeah, I'm pretty psyched too. Unfortunately, there's no way to tell if this is just a pet project of one of the devs, or if there's a set internal direction to eventually support the Linux desktop. I guess we won't really know until Valve makes an announcement. Working on Linux support...

  • Re: Steam for Linux for real this time?

    Oh my... I saw another post where a guy made some educated guesses at the URL and found THIS FILE out on Valve's servers. I was able to download the files from the public/client directory of their store.steampowered.com server. In addition to the standard Steam directories, they contain a directory...

  • Re: Orange Box $8.00!

    I bought it just there now, cost in total (incl VAT) €9.99, so whatever that is in dollars I guess. Also because I already had Half Life 2 I'm allowed give it as a gift to a friend.
