Steam For Linux Beta Is Now Open

Valve recently announced the company was close to finalizing a Steam clinet for Linux and put out a call to action for gamers interested in participating. Within its first week, Valve received over 60,000 responses to its request for participants in beta test. The first round of beta participants has been selected from this group of respondents, however Valve is looking to add more.

If you're interested in participating in the beta and are an "experienced" Linux user, there's still time to fill out Valve's application. Subsequent participants will be chosen among survey respondents, and once the team has seen a solid level of stability and performance across a variety of systems, the Steam for Linux client will become available to all users of Steam.

The Steam for Linux Beta client is currently available for installation on Ubuntu 12.04 only though several sites have mentioned users installing it on other Linux distros. The beta kicks off with 26 titles, including the free-to-play Team Fortress 2 game.
