Valve is seeking testers for the beta version of its Steam for Linux client.

The company is now taking applications, adding that its primarily looking for experienced Linux users.

While details are sparse beyond that, we've already learned Left 4 Dead 2 will be the debut title from the service on the Linux-based Ubuntu operating system.

Earlier this year Valve boss Gabe Newell stated the firm was making a push in Linux's direction due to concerns over Windows 8.
