Is it possible to play games that run off of Steam, on a Linux or Unix-based OS (other than Mac OSX)?

I was wondering if it is possible to install and play Steam games like Skyrim off a Linux or Unix-base Operating System (OS), such as FreeBSD or OpenSUSE?

Is there a way to get more than one thing to download at once?

I bought the Telltale Complete Pack from Steam, and while I realize downloading it all at once would probably make my computer implode and pretty much kill my internet forever, I want to at least download more than one thing at a time (or at the very least, make sure it downloads each game I […]

Buying games from Steam in foreign store?
