    Ah, the one downside to Ubuntu (and a lack of technological pizzazz): I can't play any games on Steam, or any games for that matter. Sure, I can use WINE and mess around and hope to god things work...but, I've already broken my laptop once...so I'll just have to live without Steam (it's not like I have anything special on it - The Movies, Ghost Master, Titan Quest, Rome: Total War; all that jazz).
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install wine
    Code:
    sudo wine /home/user/[username]/Desktop/SteamInstall.msi
    That's all there is to it

    I used to play CS:s a bit, but not in ages....
    I had orange box for my 360 on loan and loved tf2, even though servers were always dead, so am tempted to buy it for PC,as it seems to have a big community. but keep putting it off, someone convince me to just hit the shiny buy button, even though I am super poor ;p

    If you've already played/completed Portal/HL2 then there's little point in getting the Orange Box: you might as well get the wonder that is TF2 alone

    I meant buying TF2 alone off steam for 14.99 or whatever it is at now

    Portal was done and dusted and lolwin, didn't like HL2
