Just a heads up, as this might end up being a bit of a hidden and unknown feature.
In an attempt to get more games on SteamOS, Valve has added platform specific wish listing. Meaning that you can tell a developer directly that you would like to see a piece of software get ported to Linux and/ or Mac.
Quote from Valve derveloper Pierre-Loup:
"We have made changes to the wishlist aiming to improve developers’ visibility of any interest in their title coming from Steam users playing on platforms they’re not currently targeting.
If a user only has one platform filter selected in their Steam store preferences, adding a game to their wishlist will result in it being specially reported to the developer in a new platform-specific breakdown of the wishlist report:"

Currently, Steam has this feature some of you might be familiar with :
Now they’re actually making some more use of it, so developers will end up seeing something like this:
A simple change overall, but one that could end up proving quite interesting for developers. I don’t imagine this suddenly moving mountains (being realistic here), but we’ve long needed something official like this to help things along a bit more.
I don’t expect this to be a paradigm shift for Linux game ports either, but it does give non-Windows users a chance to voice what they would like to see ported to their OS of choices. It also might be a good way to help developers gauge if it is worth porting a piece of software to Linux.
