Valve to Launch ‘Steam Linux Beta’ at UDS?

Steam fans will want to keep an eye on next weeks Ubuntu Developer Summit.

As well as Valve rocking up on the event for a talk at the summit on Monday, an interesting listing has popped on the ‘Open Steam Works’ site titled “Steam Linux UDS Beta”.

Three games appear to be listed for inclusion with the UDS beta:

  • Serious Sam 3
  • Portal
  • Team Fortress 2

Valve announced earlier this month that an external Linux beta, limited to 1000 users, would appear in October. This client seems to be sparate from that (not least because it lists 3 game titles rather than the 1 Valve said would come with the regular beta).

But whether exclusive to UDS attendees or not, what better place to launch one of the biggest software arrivals in Linux history than at one of the biggest gatherings of Linux developers?
