TF2 Beta vs. TF2
I noticed that when I was invited into the Linux beta, Team Fortress 2 Beta was automatically added to my account. I went ahead and downloaded and ran it and found that it ran pretty darn well.

System specs:
CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-2820QM CPU @ 2.30GHz × 8
Graphics: Intel® Sandybridge Mobile
Memory: 4 GB DDR 3 1600

I also noticed that there were only 5 or 6 servers, and most of them didn't have any players in them. So I went back into steam and installed regular Team Fortress 2 - loaded it up - and found a ton of servers. HOWEVER, performance was significantly degraded compared to the TF2 Beta.

Should I be testing on the beta client or the regular one? What are you guys all doing? I'm fairly certain most of you are just running regular TF2 given that I can ( literally ) only find about 4 or 5 people in the entire world playing TF2 Beta at any given time.

Better question - when are changes that are making TF2 Beta work so well expected to be merged back into TF2 for a release? I'm guessing final Linux release ?
