The beta for the Linux version of Steam, which supports around two dozen titles including Team Fortress 2 and Serious Sam 3: BFE, is now live for the first wave of testers.

According to Valve's Frank Crockett, "An overwhelming majority of beta applicants have reported they're running the Ubuntu distro of Linux" and the team will prioritize development of additional popular distributions based on user feedback.

If you're dying to get access, know that this client will open up to more participants in the future, ultimately becoming available for everyone on Steam when it's ready. The timing for Valve's support of the platform is smart given where Windows 8 looks to be heading.
