Yes it is reported to work.
Here is a video of it working on Ubuntu.
There are lots of programs that help with the install of Windows based programs called PlayOnLinux and also Wine Tricks and Crossover. Although I believe Steam will help manage this when it finally gets all ported over.
Here is the more technical wine details if you are into that sort of thing. http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=25413
Hope this helps.
