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.

"The obvious roadblock is DirectX being the backbone of so many games on Windows. More and more companies are using OpenGL for mobile games and OS X ports, so we'll see if the pattern of more OpenGL ports continues."

Comparing Opengl To old direct9=fail. Secondly are the settings maxed out??. Left for dead 2 is weak in terms of graphics performance. Talk to me when valve actually benchmarks more modern Api's like dx10 11 and 12 to more modern openGL 3.0 and up. Till then this test is very flawed :/
