I've been enjoying playing in Ubuntu 12.10 using Steam for Linux. The thing is some games (like Borderlands2) can't be installed there because you can only install games for Linux.

Previously I used Steam (for Windows) installing it with PlayOnLinux in Ubuntu 12.10. Is there a problem if a install them both at once?

I doubt it will be an issue, Steam for Linux will be native and Steam via PlayonLinux will be emulated via Wine – user70137 Feb 26 '13 at 15:57

Unless you have two accounts, you can't be logged into both at once. Otherwise, I can't see why you'd have a problem.
