PSA: Steam for Linux Beta Now Available to Everyone

Valve Software announced today that the Steam Linux beta client is now available to all Steam users.

Games available for Linux via the Steam client include Harvest: Massive Encounter, Aquaria, World of Goo, Multiwinia, Team Fortress 2, DEFCON, Uplink, Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45, Serious Sam 3 BFE, portal and many more. In all there are around 39 titles that work with the beta client as of this writing. For a full list of games, check out the Steam Catalog.
