    So the latest hit point for linux games on Steam has touch 500 from Linux, I am sure in next year or so this would easily cross 1000.

    bumping this up since I am keen to try a linux distro. need advise -

    1) Would Intel HD4000 support some of these titles?
    2) What Linux Distro would you recommend running for this?
    3) Can a steam account from Windows be used on Linux?

    TIA!

    PS:- You can probably get a Windows 7 Professional license for 10$. Why Linux?

    I have a windows 7 professional license from @Invader . This is just, because Linux.

    Imagine the possibility of having a dual boot work laptop (i5 HD 4XXXX, 8 Gig ram) that can run a linux distro and steam!

    I had made one of my work machines dual boot long back using a 4 GB USB stick that ran Ubuntu netbook remix on it. Super light, super fast. It would let my bypass the restrictions on my machine (while traveling), without breaking anything or affecting my HDD in anyway.

    Same thought in progress :D

    I am not sure if Steam OS is out or not. If so get it.
