This forthcoming week will surely mark 1,700 Linux games being able natively via Steam.

We've been seeing almost 100 new Steam Linux games released per month, but that changed since the 1,600 milestone with Valve no longer listing some games that carried external dependencies outside of the Steam Runtime and other barriers.
