Thanks to Matthew Bailey showing a screenshot of his Linux games list on Steam an interesting item is on that list...DOTA2!

So looks like DOTA2 is currently in testing for Linux in some form! Could this be an indicator it is getting closer?

Awesome =D Wonder if I'll stop playing HoN because of this

Well, if DOTA2 will have better performance than HoN. HoN is sorta ok, but with good system i get much worse performance on Linux than i'd get on WIndows.

Just FYI, cyborgmatt isn't a developer, he's just a dota player who is famous for analyzing the game files to see what content updates will be in the future.

Also you can add games in Wine to the Steam Linux Client

Except that it's a steam game... and you can't run wine steam and Linux steam at the same time so... there would be absolutely no point to that.

You are right!

sorry to break your party, but I got an invite from a friend, and I could install dota2. But you can't play it though
