Well after hearing you get TF2 items, I was on the fence about downloading and installing it. But I can get an Achievement Cube, too!?

Hypothetically, should games run better or worse on Linux compared to Windows?

I would think so(though I also have a baby as my avatar) since Linux is lighter, allowing Valve(or any other developer) to take their optimization further. Imagine the possibilities if Valve were to make their own Linux distro!

what is that jpeg is it porn?

Well of course! What other use could there possibly be for a picture downloaded from Facebook?

I'm not sure I guess it would depend on the game and the quality of the available drivers for your graphics card under Linux.
One good thing that Steam for Linux has brought is better quality graphics drivers, Valve has been working closely with Intel, Nvidia, and AMD to improve their drivers under Linux.

And Valve said that their Left 4 Dead 2 port ran faster on Linux than it did on Windows

YMMV, tho

CIRUS CAN PROBABLY TELL YOU HIS EXPERIENCE
He probably plays more games on Linux than I do

Yeah it depends a lot on the game, but I've noticed equal or better performance for most games (granted there is still a small sample size).  Gaming is a viable option on Linux now thanks to Steam.  As was mentioned earlier I expect this is because Linux has a fraction of the background apps and as time goes on I think it will get better.

Also: so many of these games OWN

....and thus begins the start of Valve pioneering Linux development, soon to bring waves customers over to the open operating system, motivating many other AAA developers to port to the platform, as it has finally found an audience. Riding the wake left behind by the mass exodus of Linux development will be mainstream software development. AND DEVELOPERS WITH THE BUDGET TO INCLUDE PACKAGE INSTALLATION WIZARDS WITH THEIR PROGRAMS, FUUUUUUCCCCCKKKKKK YEEEEAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!
