Any clue about what they used to select those... you know... tester :@... I wanted in :p!...But seriously, what hardware did they took as "good enough"...
now if only they could do netflix on stream with ubuntu i would be on there in a second!
Exactly: what hardware? Especially the graphics card requirement.
No need to be a beta tester either. :D You can bypass that and get access to it right now.
This big picture mode would be great for a mythtv front end box.
can't even try native steam (sans beta) on my box.. :-( guess I'll have to wait until I can get my build off the ground and run 12.04 on it since it won't play with my 10.04
Bah, I applied and was thinking I had a pretty good chance to get into the beta. Yet... nothing.

Bit disappointed. Oh well, I still got all these nice games I bought (Humble Bundle, Indie developers) to play while I wait.
+Daniel Jenkins This second batch were those who attended the Ubuntu Developer Summit earlier this month. 
I'm in. I run Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, i7 Ivy Bridge, Nvidia GTX970, 100+ games in steam, and a few years xp with Linux. 500 more testers were added today. The updates have improved the platform. I can't wait until this is bug free. 
No platform is bug free but we get what you mean ;)
+Sandip Kumar Nopes :) it is a closed beta. 1000 people were chosen from about 60000.. and I wasn't one of them! There is a steam deb hack floating around, which is tempting, but I will wait for the open beta! 
True.. but I'll wait for the legitimate beta, just to support Valve. :)
