I didn't get in (unless it was one of the ones in my spam folder that I just deleted). I did list Ubuntu in their survey, and semi-honestly, because my wife's desktop runs it, and is very gaming capable. I would have been using it w/ gentoo, though.
Not terribly tore up about it, as I want to support Valve and the companies providing ports for their games financially, and I just wouldn't be able to do that at this exact point in time since I'm trying to close on a house.

You can download it, login and you will probably realize whether you're in or not.
Anyone try gamepad support?
Not too bad for me on Ubuntu 12.10 x64 + HD3000 graphics + Cinnamon on a MacBook Air. I'm impressed with what they've been able to do!
- Quite a few graphical artifacts in the Steam UI (missing/corrupt textures).
- Font scaling seems to be excessively large (much larger than screenshots would lead me to believe).
- Generally very sluggish, and Big Picture mode complains about not enough VRAM available if I go to 720p. Never had a problem with this on OS X. I wonder if it has to do with texture compression support.
- In-game overlay seems to work like a charm!
- Several areas of the UI lock up the program and I have to 'kill -9' the Steam process.
I'm perfectly willing to chalk just about all of this up to the open-source drivers. I'm running the stock 12.10 drivers for HD3000, and have no intention of going with the x-swat PPA.
