    is the beta only for the steam client or can you also play your games?

    It would be incredibly silly if it was only for the client and not for the games.

    Anyone who signs up for this, be sure to report back to us what games are actually available already. I'm curious.

    I think Valve'll be choosing which one to give the access.

    They said the first games to be ported to Mac would be Left 4 Dead 1 and 2.

    I'm not sure those are actually finished yet, though. Meanwhile, there are several non-Valve games for Mac that have been out for some time now, whose Windows versions are already sold on Steam (mostly the indie titles); I'm just wondering if Valve has already started putting any of those in the store.

    I certanly hope everyone will be as awesome as Valve and give us access to both Windows and Mac versions of the game if we bought it for one platform already.

    Would be nice, wouldn't it?

    I'd expect them to, but there'll probably be exceptions (like for games that had a outside company port & publish it).

    They already said they would in the news post that announced Mac support.
