that's awesome. Currently not running linux as main OS but with more and more of the reasons to stay with windows starting to lessen.. it is definitely becoming more and more possible.

I'm running steam on Linux, Half Life (1) has been out for a few months now, great to see HL2 and the episodes as well :-)

Why? The only way I'd go through the same hell that I went through when I installed TF2 on Ubuntu to get that penguin avatar for the game, is if they'd (Valve) release Half Life 3 on linux first.

I just pressed the install button in steam, that seemed to do the trick just fine, though I had a problem with no sound that turned out to just be that I had turned down the volume :-P
