Steam is simply a "download" application.  They have never even made the
pretence of supporting the client portion of their engines under non-windows
operating systems - although I expect Transgaming will have a go.

The Linux server binary for HL/HL2 are completely independent of Steam
itself - they operates in the same manner as standard dedicated server
