Ah remember you can always pull around/copy the steamapps folder (including from a Windows install). Glad you got your problem sorted out though!
RE Steam for Linux - it'll be a shot in the arm for (GNU!!/)Linux Gaming but a lot of non-Valve games will never be ported to it. Any that use GFWL, Punkbuster?? How many "real games" can the Mac Steam client actually run? Especially thinking of my love of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series here (SOC/CS run quite well in Wine these days)! GSC ain't going to be porting anything if the studio is "closing"!
