    Hell? are you stupid? Adobe-flash is a "Trojan" so anyone who not install a Trojan-spy tool is a FOSS fanatic?

    There are security reasons to not install Adobe-flash.
    There are many other reasons but this is a example.

    Also Valve don't want to work with FOSS fanatics? why they build a steam clind for linux anyway?

    are only stupid people allowed to play games with valve-steam?

    No you don't understand the real point I use wine for games for years and I always tweak,modification and crack my games.

    But the knowledge to follow howto's and do trial and error research for bugs do not mean that someone falls into a valve trap of dumpshit.

    And hey I do not use wine and tweak and mod and crack for a longer time to pay the companys for there bad linux support.

    Wine is for me a tool to use Pirates versions only because i do not pay for an anti-linux-support.

    So just to make this clear! Valve go fuck yourself!

    I used Firefox 16.01 plus FlashPlayer and had ZERO problems in submitting data...

    OTOH, i DOUBT that i am selected....

    I was HONEST in my answers and as distro, i selected OTHER because if am supposed to only select one distro, i intend to test it under SLACKWARE....

    It would be easy to answer UBUNTU , but hell with it....

    my biggest problem was that, I really want to test. I'm run Arch (testing repo) with KDE, but I put down Mint with Cinnamon as the OS I would test it on. To improve my chances . Then my Steam ID is left from my CounterStrike Source days. I stopped playing when I switched to Linux fulltime. Dual booting is to much hassel for me. I bearly had hw to play CSS in Windows so I did not even try with Wine

    So my computer is not up to date with what a gaming rig would be. For my daily video with vdpau and browsing it does not need to. If I get selected I would go out and buy a new Linux rig.

    That would then be a Intel so I could test with Intel gfx drivers. But also a Nvidia card for trouble free living.

    Also if there is a Intel gfx driver bug. I can still test more using the Nvidia card and is not stuck waiting on a driver update.

    But its hard to know how Valve reason for the people they choose.

    The irony is that the Steam for Linux community chat only works through Steam, which we still don't have a client for.

    o come one... I'm a hardcore Linux user but i would join the steam beta...

    so they only want wine users who use steam in wine???

    that?s more than stupid for a native Clint.

    but one is sure if valve really goes this way I really give a shit about them.

    Valve go fuck yourself!

    What a joke real hardcore Linux users do not have a steam ID.

    They really only want some WINDOWS freaks who like to use Linux in the FUTURE.
