Steam for Linux beta starts

Written by David Stellmack

List of games grows to 26 titles

Valve's release of Steam for Linux has started its beta; and while the beta only started with 1,000 users, Valve has revealed that over 60,000 users applied to be in the beta for the Linux version of Steam.

Perhaps the bigger news is that the number of Linux titles playable under Steam for Linux has grown to twenty-six (26), which shows the publisher interest in Linux as a possible platform. Currently, Steam for Linux runs only on Ubuntu 12.04, but other distributions of Linux are expected to be added down the road.

The beta launch for the Linux version of Steam is a big deal, but we are going to have to see how many people embrace it and whether developers can generate money developing Linux versions of their titles and selling them on Steam. This, of course, remains to be seen.
