Install steam in debian testing jessy (8)

My rig was recently upgraded for running a testing Debian Jessy (8) and I was happily surprised to find that steam is now available as a non-free package.
After years of damn horrible dualboot, I have now destroyed my ntfs partition because steam was working very good in my case in stable debian squeeze with non oficial package.
After ubuntu released it, the Debian Games Team mainteners had make a package.
Statistics of steam installations in debian
Adding contrib and non free sources, in my case, I had also to add some pinning rules for get unstable repo.
nano /etc/apt/sources.list
deb testing main contrib non-free
deb-src testing main contrib non-free
deb unstable main contrib non-free
deb-src unstable main contrib non-free
deb testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src testing/updates main contrib non-free
nano  /etc/apt/preferences
Package: *
Pin: release o=Debian,a=testing
Pin-Priority: 900
Package: *
Pin: release o=Debian,a=unstable
Pin-Priority: 300
Package: *
Pin: release o=Debian
Pin-Priority: -1
dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get install multiarch-support
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
At this time, we can install steam package with:
apt-get install steam
With my Nvidia 760 gtx, I should install proprietary drivers:
#For video drivers with nvidia
apt-get install nvidia-kernel-dkms nvidia-settings nvidia-driver linux-headers-$(uname -r)
You can now find in the gnome menu in games the application steam, at first lunch, any update is required.
