I've been a Linux user for about 3 years now, and a gamer all my life. I'm very excited about Desura and so far it's definitely been a great program. I enjoy a lot of different kinds of games, but my favorite would probably be RPGs and MMOs.

I hear from a number of people that are excited about Steam on Linux. (I'm one of them!) As these people gush about the fun to come, I ask "how do you figure Desura will fit?" and get answers like "Desura won't matter.... Desura is more for Indie games and will coexist.... the more the merrier...." and other opinions. Listen, folks, Desura is a very nice service that provided this sort of service while Valve was still dragging their heels about coming over to Linux. I'm going to be using Steam for sure, but if the same games are available on Desura that's where I'd go first.
Now, that said, the competition will definitely step things up. Desura, you have to make sure to tighten up this program! No more 'some games don't really work' crap! That won't hold water with Steam being right there to pick up slack. I want to see Desura continue to do awesome things, but that means this program needs to continue to BE excellent!
Personally, I'm in the 'the more game programs on Linux the better' camp. I love Desura but I'm very excited about Steam as well. As I get more games than I can finish in a year on my OS of choice, I'll be sure to give thanks for these two awesome programs and the games they make accessible.
