Unfortunately, I am not one of them. They are going to be gradually expanding their test, so get that Ubuntu partition ready!

This also coincides with a new NVIDIA driver release that appears to double framerates in some cases. You definitely want this if you are an NVIDIA user and do any gaming in Linux.

This is awesome. Excited to be able to get Steam in Linux natively. I currently run it in Wine and wherein works, its not amazing.

Apparently there's a way to use it without being accepted into the beta, but I'm nervous about trying that.

Oh, so just getting the client and logging in then? Yeah, that could work I mean they could lock people out, but they might not :D

Maybe that means early access? hmmm.

Yeah, you get the client and log in, then just move the window telling you that you shouldn't be doing this off to the side and use it as normal, basically.

I have to wonder if they didn't guard against that intentionally.

Prob more work to limit it than just let it swing open if people want it. Seems like Valve makes choices to what is better for the user, not much else.
