Valve taps testers for Linux Steam

Boost for Ubuntu gaming

Valve is seeking participants for its Steam for Linux beta test and has asked experienced users of the open source platform to apply.

Gaming Linux types interested - with a setup powering Ubuntu 12.04 or above - can take a survey linked on the Steam for Linux application page to register their interest.

Be quick, though, there's apparently only 1000 spots available. ®
