The beta is now live and while you probably weren't invited you can totally crash the party:

http://media.steampo...aller/steam.deb

A normal launch will result in a not allowed dialog which closes the client but if you use the jumplist (right click on the Steam icon) then you can get right in.

For non-Ubuntu/Unity users you can use (in terminal):
steam steam://store

Cool, tried it out on opensuse 12.1, but it requires glibc 2.15.
Oh well, maybe it'll be out of beta once I feel like upgrading again.

Course, that's the only incompatibility I know of, might've been more. :lol:

All of my plans are lining up nicely. STEAM on LINUX is pure bonus.

Anything on STEAM or in general on Linux?

I have a slew of Linux games that run like water.

On STEAM I played Quake II, Spiral Knights and Hard Reset and they ran awesomely!
