Valve recruiting beta testers for Steam on Linux

Beta testing beginning soon

Valve is now looking for people to test their upcoming Steam client for Linux.

Anyone on Steam can apply to take part in the beta test as long as they have a PC running the latest version of the Linux-based OS Ubuntu.

The current test will probably just include the basic client and the debut title Left 4 Dead 2 but there are not many details other than that.

Bringing Steam to Linux is Valve's reaction to Gabe Newell's concerns over Microsoft's attempts to close off the PC as a platform with Windows 8 which came out on on the 26th of October.

Thanks MCV.
