I didn't know about this until just today as apparently it came out last week. Nevertheless here is the news:

Left 4 Dead 2 had been teased by Valve even before Steam for Linux was launched, but the waiting game is over and fans will be able to play the first Beta next week.

Left 4 Dead 2 is a FPS zombie-killing cooperative game developed by Valve that has millions of fans all over the world.
If we add the fact that it's a multiplayer intensive game, with a lot of special requirements, it's understandable why it's taking a lot longer to port L4D2 to Linux than anything else in their library.

“The L4D2 Beta is mutating. Not content to just be the testing ground for the new Extended Mutation System, we will be adding Linux to the Beta.

PS: By the way, we need to get a 'Linux' Prefix for this sub-board. All there is, is MS related Nintendo, Sony and something called Handy, I think.
