While it's not the Source engine versions or I don't think it is..., I was happy to see these on my game list when I logged into the Linux Steam beta today. Not surprising it runs really well on new hardware..

Well, I have it - along with X3: Reunion - but it doesn't launch. Still, exciting times ...

EDIT: launches in windowed mode okay, just not fullscreen.

The orange box came with Half Life: Source, not the original Half-Life (which used the GoldSrc engine). The Linux version is based on the original Half-Life. If you really want it, and don't want to buy it, then I'm fairly sure you can use any CD-KEY to activate it (even one that's been used by loads of other people, if you get my meaning).

That said, it'll probably be on sale soon.

I know, that's all besides the point though. I meant it isn't in the list of Linux games. At least not for me.

Well if there's not already a distribution that just has the minimum amount of stuff required to run Steam, and nothing more, then I'm sure there will be in the future (i.e. an unofficial or a official "SteamBox OS").

Although I don't think qemu works works with 3D yet.
