New submitter spacenet writes "Valve has quietly released an update to the beta version of its popular online FPS Team Fortress 2. Among the modified files are some Linux-related files including a hardware driver compatibility list, optimal graphics settings, and a shell script launcher (previously only for OS X, now with a case for Linux as well). Valve has not updated their TF2 beta changelog, but has acknowledged the update in a forum post."

    TF2 via Steam works great under WINE for me. I'd buy a linux copy though.

    Well, ignoring that TF2 is free now, assuming they continue with steamplay the way they did for OSX most games (and all valve titles) that have a port and you already own for one platform will be available for Linux from your steam library with no fee
