Have any of you gotten steam running under wone in Solaris/illumos? I cannot find anything about it on google and I thought it might be a fun thing to try.

I don't think you'll get very far... It just barely works on Linux now!

I know Bryan Cantrill is very busy pushing Illumos for running high performance Linux Containers, etc.
But that's purely for Server usage I would wager - so I doubt graphics pass-through gets much consideration (but I could be wrong).
Mr Cantrill likes to talk :lol: - so you could probably find out more information just by Googling some of his more recent talks.

FreeBSD would definitely be a better bet - with the Linux compatibility layer (which is still maintained) as a fallback option!

Steam works okay under wine on FreeBSD.
There are no real working ways to use it via linux emulation however

Thanks for the update - I wasn't sure on the current status of this!
