I've been waiting for this for many months, and Valve has finally fixed their Steam store filters to allow you to view only Upcoming games on SteamOS & Linux.

It's insane how long it actually took them to fix this. It was reported to them in March of last year on github, and it wasn't working for quite a while before then from what I remember.

This makes things a lot easier to sort our Release Calendar out, and for general users looking at what's coming.

Well done Valve for finally fixing it. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Can we also filter our library to Linux games even if we're running in Windows? Last I checked, I had to be in Linux to filter my library by OS.

Either way, it's great the store has the OS filter working finally.

Good news that is! I offten looked through the games to come and had to look for the SteamOS on my own. Not hard to do of coursee but still annoying.

You can always explicitely choose SteamOS/Linux and deselect Windows. (Except for the upcoming section, where it didn't work.)

Think he means his current library, which no you can't.

Steam's library really isn't well designed client wise.

It's also pretty annoying that main store page shows me a bunch of Windows titles. I wish there was a way to "stop showing me irrelevant stuff". Obviously no-one like to live in a bubble, but I just don't care, at all, about what's coming/out/on-sale if it's Windows only.

It would be like shopping for a book on Amazon, but with no way to filter out the languages you don't speak. Can't understand Valve's thinking here.

Now, they should fix also one more things.
When I go to Steam store in my Linux web browser like Firefox, Chromium/Chrome/Opera and etc. Store show me as default windows titles and not Linux. Also when I want to see games req I see in default Windows and again not Linux...
Some times ago this working fine but now is completly broken.

Anyone found a way to either filter our wishlist view by OS, or at least display the OS icon on the items ? (I'm using the wishlist as a radar for interesting games, waiting for them to either be on sale or come out on linux).

I reported this forever ago on Github, glad to see it finally was addressed!
