While I was looking to see if they released L4D on Linux last night, I got an entirely different surprise.  Portal has been added as a beta!

I downloaded it and it seems to work perfectly with all the option cranked up to max.

That brings the Valve store's total Linux games up to 180.  If they really do release L4D today or this weekend, this will have been a good week!

So if you bought these for Windows, would you be able to play them if you had a linux machine?

If they are Steam games,...yes.

Good to know. I figured that was the case but wasn't sure.
