I really cant be arsed with Wine. I find that half the time i end up fiddling to get something semi working and then it is never good as native windows.|
So if Linux Steam aims to have a seamless experience as Windows then iam all over this. Sure will dual boot with Win 7 but will mean i can spend more time in Ubuntu which at the moment is for mostly fiddling. I love the open nature of Ubuntu, but i really cant be bothered with having to work out soultions to things which i really shouldnt have to.
Look forward to the reports from beta testers as this is a step in right direction and will hopefully have knock on effect if gets popular enough. Simple things like proper drivers from manufacters such as Logitech (mice) or Asus (sound cards) at the moment everything is possible but requires effort or older non optimised drivers.
