Left 4 Dead for Linux ?

Interesting article from Slashdot regarding Phronix websites “Valve’s Source Engine is coming to Linux” . Firstly advertising for a Linux Software Engineer is a bit of a giveaway and now the release of STEAM for Linux. Er, i’ll qualify that, the STEAM code and files are in “Left 4 Dead” demo a first person shooter developed by Turtle Rock Studios and then acquired by Valve and written around the Source Engine. They say “The Left 4 Dead playable demo has twenty Linux library files shipping with the client “So i’m guessing it’s only a matter of time before the announcement that Linux is officially supported via STEAM. And just out of interest, when they talk of SOURCE is this the original CounterStrike source code they refer to.
