This will please a whole bunch of Linux users.

Valve Officially confirms Steam for Ubuntu

Quote
For some time, Gabe has been interested in the possibility of moving Steam and the Source game engine to Linux. At the time, the company was already using Linux by supporting Linux-based servers for Source-based games and also by maintaining several internal servers (running a 64-bit version of Ubuntu server) for various projects. In 2011, based on the success of those efforts and conversations in the hallway, we decided to take the next step and form a new team. At that time, the team only consisted of a few people whose main purpose was investigating the possibility of moving the Steam client and Left 4 Dead 2 over to Ubuntu.

Will graphics drivers be up to the task?  That used to be a weak point of Linux compared with the dreaded MS.
Which graphics cards are currently best supported?
