    If you were thinking of ditching your console or PC for a Steam Machine from Valve this year, think again.

    It'll be a challenge, that's for sure. I had a look at making up a low(ish)-powered box running Linux and found that the best range of games is with Wine; tonnes more than with the Linux Steam games.

    Game // Steam Linux // Wine

    Killing Floor // Yep // No point
    FFXIV // Nope // Yep
    Call of Duty // Nope, not even the later ones // Yep, just the earlier ones though
    Battlefield // Nope // Some success
    WoW // What's Warcraft? // Yep
    LoL // League of what now? // Yep
    Xcom // Nope // Yep

    I could go on for a long time...

    It's been years since I've done anything with Linux but is the biggest problem with Linux still the fact that there are just too many distributions in order to try and provide support for? I hear Ubuntu a lot but is that becoming a typical standard or is it all over the place still?

    To me, that's always been the greatest pull and the biggest problem with it, to many distributions in order to support so I guess I'm just wondering if that's changed at all.
