The L4D2 Beta allows you to test the new Extended Mutation System (EMS). It also natively supports Linux and a few other things. Normal L4D2 doesn't have these features, yet.

Dammit, when there's Left 4 Dead 2 Beta on Linux, WHY THE ♥♥♥♥ DOES IT REQUIRE THE Beta on Windows too?!
Or is it crappy Windows L4D2 just transformed to Linux? I won't hope that this is the case, because it's the worst case then.

Now uninstalling ti again thought Valve would do a great job there.
Looking on the game itself, Valve does, but the Beta non-Beta incompatibility from Linux to Windows sucks. Linux has nothing to do with Windows except it's the same game engine and API. ♥♥♥♥ it.

It is on windows because it is also to test the extended mutation system, not only linux.

The beta also has a new mutation system, and is testing cross platform play

Protip: If you don't understand someone's post and it's been a while since they made it, assume one of you is insane. I'm pretty sure your guess as to who is insane is correct.

so should we download/install left 4 dead 2, or the left 4 dead beta? Besides the new survival mutation system, do they both have the same things?
