Non-game Software Coming to Steam

Valve has recently announced that it will be adding non-game software to its offerings on Steam.

The software titles that will be coming to Steam range “from creativity to productivity.” Many of them will make use of popular Steamworks features such as easy installation, automatic updating, and the ability to save to the Steam cloud. The launch date for this expansion is September 5.

In order to use Steam on Linux, you need to install wine and winetricks:

sudo apt-get install wine winetricks

and then use winetricks to install Steam:

winetricks steam

It is best to set up Steam in a 32 bit partition. I am running 32 bit Quantal, to keep from having any problems.
