Steam for Linux games list leaked?

Steam for Linux games list leaked? Last month, Valve said it would allow 1000 Linux users to test out the popular Steam platform as a private beta starting this 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.

This week, entries into Valve's Content Description Record database for Steam have leaked the games that will be available to Linux users, at least during the beta phase.

Those games are Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Crusader Kings 2, Cubemen, Dynamite Jack, Eversion, Galcon Fusion, Serious Sam 3: BFE, Solar 2, SpaceChem, Steel Storm: Burning Retribution, Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP, Trine 2, Waveform and World of Goo.

Naturally, the games that were already available in Linux wouldn't be that hard to add. I know that some of the games in the Humble Bundles were available for Linux.

Yeah I know Trine 2 (awesome game, as was its predecessor) was among those already available on Linux. Still, at least they're getting the platform ready to be cross-platform.

savage 2, warzone, eternal lands and 0 ad have gotten me by pretty well. There are plenty of games on linux without steam. Plenty that are completely free!

Buy the ticket, take the ride. -H.S.T.

There are plenty of free games, but I'd like to buy Steam games for Linux to show my support for commercial Linux gaming. I'm tired of having to run Windows to play the games I want to play. I tried giving up Windows a couple of years ago and trying to use WINE to play games was a headache. I really want companies to break their dependence on DirectX so that games are more cross platform friendly.
