Environment for cooperative knowledge management
  20 reviews

Steam provides a technical platform which allows groups of students, lecturers and any other groups to construct and arrange their individual and cooperative learning and working space.

steam consists of an object-oriented server connected to a database and web, java and other (ftp, irc, ...) clients. the server is event-driven and manages all user objects as well as the communication between the connected clients.

different from most other cooperation tools is the novel possibility of self-organisation and self-administration by the members within the virtual environment.

in the core, the system provides the following self-administrating functions:

* creation of rooms
* granting of admission or access authorisations
* administration and processing of objects or references to objects and
documents located on other servers
* carrying objects and passing them on to other users
* use of rooms as cooperative media (e.g. shared whiteboard)
a more detailed description can be found on the website:

steam needs a mysql server, but it need not necessarily be installed on the same computer.

this package contains the steam server.

Does not work with my Sarah 18 distribution. Appears to not load. Should be a relatively easy fix for Valve -- assuming they are even interested in supporting Linux community.

Não sou exatamente um jogador, estou instalando mais porque meu chefe quer que eu jogue, mas é bom saber que a Valve tem consciência do que o Windows está se tornando e resolveu investir em plataformas livres.

Steam is a game content delivery system. It allows you to buy, download and update commercial games. Games are linked to their Steam account, so once purchased can be installed on any other PC by installing Steam on it. Also includes community, forums, chat function and achievements. Do note that the games available on Steam are commercial titles, not free ones, but there are a large number of excellent Indie games on there (e.g. Braid, Amnesia). Very popular on Windows, keeop an eye out for heavily discounted games in the Steam Sales...

沒想到 Linux 也能玩遊戲!如果 Diablo III 或 AION 也能在 Linux 上玩,那就更讚了!

This is how we are going to replace slow, unreliable, unsecure, fragmenting Microsoft Windows, Linux can do so many things without Windows but its always been limited mostly to Games it doesnt have to be this way anymore! If Other Unix-Like Operating Systems(Playstation, Wii, Mac OS X) can be famous for games then why can't Linux

Why Linux is always ignored by software developers? Linux is free so eweryone can have it. Hey Developers wake up!!! Hope the steam will get the most of linux.
