Steam games begin listing Linux system requirements

Steam has begun listing Linux system requirements on certain games, according to OMGUbuntu.

While not all games come with the listing, a great deal of them — including Valve's first-party titles — currently have Linux system requirements listed under the Windows PC and Mac requirements.

Engadget reports that system specs may not be visible to those viewing Steam on a non-Linux operating system, although this might change as the platform roll outs for everyone.
