Valve has announced that their Steam Linux client is now available to all Linux gamers. It's open beta period now and just in time for the holidays.

After sharing last week that Valve would have a Christmas present for Linux gamers in terms of a more open beta program, that has now been made a reality. You no longer need to be one of the selected beta participants to have your Steam account accessible under Linux with the current selection of games that are natively available.

Written to SteamPowered.com, "The Steam for Linux beta client is now available to all Steam users, so if you've been patiently waiting for an invitation to join us, consider yourself officially invited!"

The Linux games available on the Steam Linux client range from Serious Sam 3 to Team Fortress 2 to Killing Floor, iBomber Attack, and many others.
