The beta still has some crash related issues that need to be smoothed out, but when it's running, it seems to be solid.

Devs have been able to reproduce most of the reported problems and hopefully will have solutions soon :)

The devs seem very on the ball so a couple of days maximum.
Don't let the bugs stop you from buying it, its so close to working.

At the very least, if you're concerned, don't let beta bugs stop you from buying it once the Linux version is released :D

Yep, this. I don't tend to buy anything that doesn't have the tux logo on it now. Although I do make exceptions for a good beta. Shame I'm busy tonight and I'll be writing up the Funding Crowd tomorrow (and possibly Friday, since I have a busy weekend coming up), so I'll wait for the full release on this one! Looks great though.

I bet it runs a lot better than Natural Selection 2

NS2 apparently runs a lot better these days. I haven't had time to try it personally within the last month or so, though :(

Brought this game after reading about it here. Hope fully it will run and work on Opensuse. :)
