Someone on Twitter claimed it was backwards-compatible with all Steam titles. As a game developer I have to chime in to say that for a Linux-based OS - that simply can't be true. It would by definition only run games built for or ported to Linux.

For OpenGL-based games porting could be relatively trivial, but there will always be the inertia caused by substandard development and debugging tools on that platform - as has always been the case.
