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.

I'm not sure what you're talking about.

You just have to move your mouse to the bottom right of the screen then click settings>power>shutdown. That's 1 click and arguably one mouse move more than the start menu. It works while you're on the desktop, you don't need to be at the start screen or within metro...

People whines left and right when something in Linux is "1 click and arguably one mouse move" different from how it is in Windows.

Now we'll see who is for real (the ones who also whine about Windows 8) and who's a fanboy (the ones who do about Linux but don't about Windows 8).
