How does steam greenlight work? Do you read about said game or pay it?

I always thought you got to play early versions of indie titles through greenlight, but now i think from just playing around with it that you read about games and what?

Greenlight means steam will host the game when the developer is ready and puts out a good build. Whether it be final or a early access

You can also go into the Steam Greenlight area and vote for games you'd like to see released. With enough votes they get the "Greenlight" status.

Greenlight is like "vote for me so I can get on steam".

Early access is like "Pay me now and I'll let you look at what I've got so far, otherwise wait for the full thing later"

Greenlight is eventually going to get removed though because Valve considers it a failed experiment.

I thought Greenlight was always a bit of a transitional concept?
Well, hopefully whatever replaces it is awesome.
