A Steam client has been released for the Linux OS and Valve has labeled Ubuntu Linux as the best version of the OS to use. In addition to a number of games already compatible with Linux, the client also features support for Steam Big Picture technology which works with gamers who want to use a television and game controller. To celebrate the release of this client, more than 50 Linux titles will be 50-75% off until February 21. An in-game item, Linux mascot Tux, will be given to anyone that plays Team Fortress 2 on Linux. Director of Consumer Applications at Canonical David Pitkin said, “We expect a growing number of game developers to include Ubuntu among their target platforms. We’re looking forward to seeing AAA games developed with Ubuntu in mind as part of a multi-platform day and date release on Steam.”
