1. Linux distro being used
Mint 15 64-bit. It was a one-click process each to get both the nVidia driver installed (v310) and to get Steam up and running.
2. Main games played on Linux
Serious Sam: BFE at the moment (Steam). I've got an old copy of Quake Wars Enemy Territory (Linux version) I've been meaning to install. Also play the occasional more casual games like World of Goo (also on Steam).
3. Level of experience with Linux
Used it sporadically for many years. It still befuddles me on occasion, but I enjoy the control it provides me (even if that often = enough rope to hang myself with ). I've run Neverwinter Nights game worlds and an Unreal Tournament game server. Currently trying my hand at PostgreSQL and python web development (flask).
4. Any questions you might have
When are we going to see more Steam games on Linux?!?!
In the past, I've had major problems getting even the proprietary Radeon drivers to work on Linux. nVidia, though often troublesome to some extent as well, usually seemed to be a smaller hill to climb. With Mint's new proprietary drivers installation tool, setting up that GeForce card is a piece of cake. This is probably the biggest reason I keep buying nVidia cards.
Welcome, you have been added!! To be honest, the Radeon drivers were never to hard for me to install on linux. The only problem I have had with GPUs when it comes to Linux is screen tearing with Nvidia cards on the desktop. I figured I was just doing something wrong though haha.
Hopefully we see more and more steam games for linux start rolling out.... It is constantly gaining momentum, and at this point it seems like steam is decently motivated to keep up with the support for Linux.
