Steam for Linux reaching internal beta Valve has said it will allow 1000 Linux users to test out the popular Steam platform as a private beta starting next month.
Steam has been available to Mac and Windows users for years now, but Linux users have been left in the dark. Valve announced earlier this year that Linux users would be getting access and four months later fans have a beta.

Founder Gabe Newell became specifically involved in the process, expediting the process.

The beta will go live the first week of October, and will not include the recently added Big Picture Mode. The beta will also only include one Steam game and support Ubuntu 12.04 and newer.

It is unclear what the single title will be, although rumor has it it will be 'Left 4 Dead 2.'
