There are two quick and easy ways to install the Steam client under Ubuntu. First, as of February 2013, you can install Steam from the Ubuntu Software Center. Second, you can download the deb file from the Steam website [1] and double-click on it to install. Both methods will install the Steam client (Figure 1). After that, you'll need to log into your Steam account or create a new one, then prepare to lose hundred of hours playing a wide selection of games offered for Ubuntu. (Also see the Steam article on page 60.)
