There are only 1,000 spots available in the current registry

Valve has announced that it is allowing users to apply for the Steam for Linux beta.
Valve is specifically looking for experienced users that are familiar with Linux and are running Ubuntu 12.04 or above. This is likely because it's in the way early stages and needs a good debugging. Users that are newer to Linux are being asked to wait until the next beta release to apply. 
There are only 1,000 spots available in the current registry, so those who fit the bill can sign up through their Steam accounts. Valve will follow up with users afterward. 
Steam is a digital distribution, multiplayer and communications platform that distributes video games online from small developers to larger software companies.

From as far as I can tell, OSX is used by a lot of people. Ubuntu is just the poor mans OSX.

Not really. Apple is ~5% of the worldwide computer market. Statistically insignificant.

...Linux is even more insignificant.

dude - seriously. thats like saying that windows phone 8 is a poor mans version of windows server because they both run on the NT kernal. they are different operating systems that do different things.

ubuntu has got nothing to do with osx - they are completely different paradigms running on different kernals.
