Valve's ongoing effort to retrofit its games with Linux support has come to two of its classic and most revered games. Both Half-Life and Counter-Strike now have Linux versions available on Steam.

PC Gamer noted that both of the Steam pages (Half-Life, Counter-Strike) now sport the familiar Linux logo. The push for Linux support goes hand-in-hand with some of Valve's other recent ideas, including Big Picture mode and the Steam Box. All three initiatives seem set to work in conjunction to spearhead Valve's entrance into the living room.

      Sweet, now how about Dota2?

      The rest of the HL series would be nice too since they have so many games from the source engine already ported.

        Are you talking about the expansions like Opposing Force and BlueShift or the episodes for HL2.
