    Non-beta? Do you even use Steam for Linux to see, that it is NOT non-beta?

      The article is correct. It is out of Beta.

      Also, there are rumours that DotA 2 is next and coming very soon.

        You can check it out yourself, it's been out for roughly a day. It's still in the testing phase though, so it has "beta" in brackets in its name in your Steam library.

            Well, 'kind of sort of'. You can now play the more normal version which has achievements and all that, and play with your Windows-using friends who are on the regular build.

                    I have two left for dead 2 in my library.

                    The second one is not installed yet, it appeared yesterday.

                      It doesn't show up under the "Linux" button, like so many other games that works with linux. Why is this? I know I can buy it and it will work but it's wierd it doesn't show up in the linux games listing.

                        The L4D 2 with the icon is the official one, but it just got a "(Beta)" mention added back to it. I tested the other one earlier, but it is a bit too much for my Intel HD4000.

                          And both are marked as "beta", so what's your point?

                              Sir, the Intel Hd 4000 must be really crippled on linux if it isn't running properly. I have a Intel HD 4000 (ivy bridge) laptop that can play Crysis 3 on normal settings, the witcher 2 on low settings, Saints row 3 on high settings, heck there isn't even a game that it really can't play.

                              I play a lot of Battlefield 3 on medium settings with the Intel HD 4000, I can completely max out at 1920x1080 with all the bells and whistles enabled on Left 4 Dead 2.

                              It's not your hardware that is lacking, its the driver support atm.
