Quick Note: Valve Opens Registry for Steam for Linux Beta

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

RE: The biggest barrier to widespread Linux Adoption...

Bro... In modern Ubuntu drivers are a one-click install from a dialog that pops up automatically when Ubuntu detects there are proprietary drivers you could use. No command line. They get updated automatically when an update is out.
I see a lot of comments here by people who have evidently not tried Linux, or at least not a good distro in recent times (ie. this year). Remember Linux distros put out new versions twice a year, not every few years like Windows.
Devs love the CLI because to *them* it really is useful. I agree about it being a hipster attitude in the general community though, often suggesting the CLI for things that you don't actually need to use it for.
