The lights are on
Valve has been experimenting with bringing some of its games to the Linux platform, starting with Left 4 Dead, and it is already getting some impressive results.
According to a recent blog post by Valve the developers were able to get Left 4 Dead 2 to run at 315 frames per second on Linux while Windows runs the game at 270.6 frames per second.
Ultimately, the extra 44.4 frames per second that Linux is able to pull off over Windows is mostly negligible, but it speaks highly of the Linux operating system and shows that it has a lot of potential.

Old News, nice that you're reporting it though.
Linux could do potentially well with games in the future then perhaps...
If only you could run it on a Raspberry pi. That would be awesome
This is me not caring. -.-
A tin can could run a Source powered game decently.
As much as I love Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, they need to stop beating that horse! Even with the "new" Cold Stream DLC I think it's about time they start taking about a new entry in the series rather than being like "LOOK WHAT I CAN DO!"
