Valve opens Steam for Linux beta to everyone

After opening the doors to a limited beta of Steam for Linux to just 1,000 people last month, Valve is now rolling out Steam Linux beta for all users.

People can now play 39 titles in beta, including Team Fortress 2, Portal and Serious Sam BFE, with Left 4 Dead 2 coming soon.

Valve co-founder Gabe Newell said earlier this month that Valve wants to get Steam’s TV-friendly Big Picture on Steam Linux and that the company is working on a next-generation software engine that would work with next-generation consoles.
