Please search the forums. This has been asked several times.

But yes, yes you are.

that email was worded very strangely i wasn’t sure if i was a beta tester or just on some kind of list that meant i might get the beta soon? it should have been titled "you are a beta tester"

If you can start steam without the workaround then you're in. There's not that much difference depending on the games you already owned. Unfortunately SS3: BFE is no longer in the beta - they decided it was ready for release. Mainly it's access to the Limited beta forum.

No, Steam is yet for 32-bit only. So you have to get 32bit libs or get an 32-bit linux running (for example with chroot or such things)

We didn't decide it out of beta/ready for release yet. :) We just:

1) had to cut down the number of users as we cannot handle the number of incoming new bug reports (many of which are becoming redundant). We are still working on fixing and improving it.
2) wanted to see how many people actually bought it / will buy it on Linux. (Consider it beta-testing the commercial viability. ;) )
