Steam For Linux Is Now an Open Beta

JazzVoid Re:Portal 2 (353 comments)

Humble Bundle is not an indicator. It's great that Linux users spend more, but if you'll take Windows or console game market in account, $2 per game spent by Linux users is nothing. All these games on Steam together worth around $60.

JazzVoid Re:Gtalk/Facebook (213 comments)

I've been using GTalk for years but it kind of sucks when you're using it with 3rd-party client. Most of it's features and XEPs are GTalk-exclusive and at the same time it doesn't support popular modern XEPs like "publish tune".
