The ever popular Gabe Newell had this to say about the Steam for Linux limited access beta:
“This is a huge milestone in the development of PC gaming, “Steam users have been asking us to support gaming on Linux. We’re happy to bring rich forms of entertainment and our community of users to this open, customer-friendly platform.”
The Steam for Linux Beta client is currently available for installation on Ubuntu 12.04 with an “overwhelming majority of beta applicants” reporting use of the Ubuntu distro of Linux.
Valve said it intends to support additional distros in the future, with prioritization of each released based on customer feedback.
Over 60,000 enters their names to join the beta. More users will generally be added to the beta.
