    On the blog they said that anyone who expresses his interest (in the comments) would get added to the list.

        In other words, send requests to /dev/null?

          Name ValveTestApp218980 Early Access
          Don't know if that's connected to the LinuxSteam sub that was detected yesterday but since it has 'Early Access' in it's name, I guess it has.

            All the comments have to be authorized and they'll not be adding comments on old blog posts of course.
            You can also contact them using the email they provided in their first blog post.

                  Probably they'll give Portal away for free as they did at the time of the Steam Mac launch.

                  Btw, I generally hate the F2P "movement" but I don't get why Valve didn't ported Team Fortress 2 first for the beta.
                  A multiplayer game, which is playable free of charge, should be best choice for a public beta.
                  But then again, maybe the Linux version of L4D2 will be free for the time of the beta as well.

                    Well, that would be because TF2's source is quite the clusterfuck, and I think they may be considering an engine switch to the latest source, something that was petitioned a bit of time ago in order to fix some serious bugs affecting the game as well as increasing perfomance.

                    I think TF2's will be the last game to be ported, unfortunately. Although I hope to be proven wrong.

                      Is it? I thought all Source games share more or less the same level of code quality.
