Steam on Linux: Still not quite there yet.

I recently installed ubuntu linux on my PC to give it a test run. And then I remembered there’s now a linux version of the Steam client, so I decided to give it a go also.

The selection of available games is, as expected, not very large, but there’s a good selection of valve’ s own products, portal, team fortress, etc. So I decided to download Team Fortress.

Unfortunately the game crashes suddenly when opening the advanced options menu and drops you to the desktop with no warning or error messages. So… nice idea but the execution is just not there yet.
