Or just play them natively!

Valve have revealed that they will soon be launching SteamOS, the new purpose-built operating system designed to run on Linux and hook into your existing Steam installations on both Windows and Mac.
SteamOS, which will be free (and free for hardware manufacturers to license) will not only run most (if not eventually all) Steam games natively, but also allow you to stream your games from your Windows and Mac PCs to your living room.
“In SteamOS, we have achieved significant performance increases in graphics processing, and we’re now targeting audio performance and reductions in input latency at the operating system level,” writes Valve on the official announcement page. “Game developers are already taking advantage of these gains as they target SteamOS for their new releases.”
Valve also promise that they’re working on bringing music, TV and movie services to SteamOS, as well as improved family sharing and new family options that only display appropriate games to appropriate users.
Take a look at the official announcement, and join us in 48 hours time when Steam reveal the next part of their plan for living room domination — which hopefully will show off their hardware.
