Have you been waiting for the Steam beta… Well the signup is nearly here!
Valve have released the following information
Things have been going well. We will be having an internal beta starting next week, and a private external beta for 1,000 users sometime in October.
The private external beta will include:
One Valve game
Support for Ubuntu 12.04 and above
It will not yet include:
Big Picture mode
Additional Valve games
For existing Linux users, the external private beta is a good release for seeing where we are in running our games on Linux. We will be using a sign up page for the external beta. Information about the sign up will be announced in a future post.
For those new to Linux, we recommend waiting for a subsequent release where more features are implemented along with improvements to the user install experience.
