    people are gonna scream FUD but i'm just salivating at the prospect of the bug reports on the POS platform that's ubuntu. this is because ubuntu is much buggier than osx and steam on the mac is already glitchy. ubuntu's six month release cycle is a joke. it's basically half-broken apps on a crappy video stack running on a monolithic kernel.

    Thumbs down

    Hope the invitation to the 'external beta' to used by proper Linux Users/Lovers.
    It should not end up as Steam Trading commodity.

    I have seen people selling - "Steam BETA Community invitation", "Steam Mobile App invitation" etc.

    Awesome, hopefully not too long until Arch gets it, either hacked by Arch or official from Valve. Shouldn't be too difficult... systemd entry would be nice and hopefully Valve doesn't do anything stupid like requiring specific linking to outdated Ubuntu dependencies.

    I'll let you know how it goes on my machine. I've had good success with gaming on my nice desktop in Ubuntu for the last couple of years, despite you claiming it should be in shambles and barely functioning.

    I'm an Arch User and have been added to their Beta List very early. I'll report how things are going on Phoronix and over at the Arch Linux Forums.
    My test system is Core i7 2600K with GeForce GTX 580 so it should be ideal in terms of supported hardware.

    Ohh happy day!!!! Oh happy day!
