Games Yesterday Phoronix showed proof of Steam's Linux client existence via its Mac OS X launcher that is currently in closed beta, then this morning they showed further signs of Linux support. Since 2008 it was known that Steam and the Source Engine would come to Linux. As an update, they even pointed out the download link for the Steam Linux binary from their store.

But that still isn't proof that they plan on releasing a Linux client anytime soon. They could just be working on it much like MS is rumored to be working on an ARM version of Windows in case it gets popular on netbooks.

They could also be experimenting with Linux and haven't made a decision yet as to whether they want to support it at this time.

I wouldn't get excited unless Valve makes an announcement. Software companies will sometimes hire a developer to investigate the viability of a market. It may just be for internal use, it may be coming out in less than a year. We don't know at this point.
