    Yeah, but I don't recommend switching to Linux. I tried it, returned to Windows after a few days. It just isn't ready for prime time yet.

    Obviously. SteamOS is based on the Linux kernel.

    It's amazing to finally see the full release for Mac/Linux! I do have one question, though. I was wondering why my Steam library still says its in the open beta. Do I have to change something in the properties to play the full release?

    Edit: Nevermind. I figured it out.

    Edit: I noticed that a some people we're having the same problem. What I did was I went into the Steam Library, opened the properties window, and opted out of the Beta. It's basically the same as entering the Beta.

    Terraria now works out-of-box on Arch. I imagine supporting every distro in existence would be a nightmarish task, so I'd rather the devs concentrate their efforts on the game itself. Linux folk will manage anyway. I also believe they've chosen Ubuntu, because of how Terraria client is tied with the Steam platform. Incidentally, Ubuntu is the distro that Steam officially supports.

    You shouldn't use sudo for editing files in your own home directory.

    It has been confirmed to run on Arch, and it should on most distros.

    I bet they are really getting those nerfs down in windows. But I'm glad linux is getting terraria because I may go linux over windows 10.

    Thanks to Skiphs, Arkhalis and the Re-Logic team for all the hard work on getting Mac and Linux up to speed. It's exciting to play on my Mac as well as my Windows computers. Love the flexibility.
