theres no set date, however, since dota 2 is one of the new games, then it should be eventually ported

it probably will be good to go in the next 2 or so months, after left 4 dead 2 is up and running

It's hard to say since realistically it is the last game they should port since it's such an ever-changing codebase and would be the most complicated to do.

On the other hand it is their most popular game and they're really trying to push Linux and how can you possibly push Linux if your most popular game isn't ported yet?

Given their recent efforts, Valve may be porting this one sooner, since keeping track of cross-platform compatibility from an early point might save them a lot of trouble down the line.

Well it doesn't even have a Mac port yet, I'm guessing they're holding off on it until the client becomes more stable and isn't updated on a weekly basis.

actually, there used to be a Mac build of "Dota 2 Test" until a few weeks ago, but since they stopped making Mac builds, I assume they're focusing on speedy improvements of the Windows version first. It's clear from this that they're planning to go cross-platform with it, so I assume it will be ported eventually.
