      CS: GO, DOTA 2 and TF2 are the most important titles on Steam and should be ported next.

            At what time (in the 21-minute video) does he say that Steam Linux Beta is coming "Fairly soon"? I think I must have somehow missed that part

                  He actually said "fairly quickly", not soon.


                  In regards to Dota 2 port, that will only happend closer to its release date.

                    Beta

                    Valve putiting out betas is a great idea because big parts of the Linux community is very experienced in using alpha, beta, release candidates and bleeding edge software such as nightly builds.

                    Big parts of our Linux community is also used to report bugs, file good reports with relevant information included, and even use debuggers.

                      I googled steam linux beta and one of the results was from fileplanet ( http://www.fileplanet.com/126568/dow...nt-[Linux] ). When you go there it immediately gives you a gz archive with an executable in it called 'steam'. I ran it on ubuntu 11.10 via virtualbox. After running the executable I realised and then stopped the virtual machine from having access to the Internet. It didn't seem to do anything. Running it again so this time from start it didn't have any connection to the Internet it immediately told me

                      Code:
                      ubuntu@ubuntu:~/Desktop$ ./steam
                      Failed to connect to any GeneralDirectoryServer
                      wtf is that?
