Half Life 1 has popped up on the Steam CDR and several people have already tested it and got it to work! Pretty big news since it still is such a huge game and Valve's first game!
So it looks like the next Valve title to grace Linux will be the original Half-Life I didn't see that one coming at all! I do have pretty good memories of the game and loved it!
This is not an official release it seems it's in Beta at the moment.
An old unofficial trailer:
It seems I don't actually own the game on my current Steam account (it's on my really old original account i lost all info for a long time ago ) so i won't be able to play test, but i will probably buy it again thanks to this!

If you opt in the beta test in the Counter Strike properties, you'll be able to install Counter Strike 1 point fucking 6 on Linux. Natively. Pretty much what I've been waiting for for literally 6 years.
ha, that made me dig up the old CD and enter the code, never did that for half life 1, back when it was released I did not see the reason as steam was just for online stuff and having a crrrrr-beeep-crrrr modem that was way to expensive. old code did work fine just now
