Linux Steam External Beta Plans

The Valve Linux Blog announces they will begin internally testing Steam for Linux next week, and will begin admitting external testers next month, saying: "Things have been going well. We will be having an internal beta starting next week, and a private external beta for 1,000 users sometime in October." Here's word on where they are with this:

The private external beta will include:

  • Steam
  • One Valve game
  • Support for Ubuntu 12.04 and above

It will not yet include:

  • Big Picture mode
  • Additional Valve games

So help me understand here (complete Linux noob) - for all of my games to be playable on Linux the developer of each would have to make a special Linux version, right? Can Direct X even run on Linux?

Bingo. Special Linux versions, and NO DirectX. Games would have to use DirectX alternatives, which are just fine like OpenGL for video, and fmod for sound!
