      Got a reason why not?

      That app ID 221410 does show up as a sub under the Steam Linux beta CDR:
      http://cdr.thebronasium.com/sub/apps/16549
      (This is probably how it was found even).

      Does seem like a unusual way to get access to the beta, kinda goes against what they said in their blog:

      I don't see a post referencing this "sign up page" yet. Ah well, can't hurt to join the group It does seem like an "official" group considering it exists in the steam CDR.

          I think -

          Valve will bring a Registration form.
          This Group is for suggestions and feedback and bug reporting.

            I agree with that.

                  I really like how you first choose what distro you use and then later at "What type of graphics driver are you using?" you only have answers available with "... via Ubuntu Package Manager" :-D

                    I guess choosing any other distro than Ubuntu won't grant you access to the beta.
                    The other distro options might be there to gather some additional statistics.

                      Maybe. I took a chance and answered "other" for distro, as even if I did install a copy of Ubuntu just for the beta I'd still rather get it working in Arch.
