Since Steam has it's own achievements for the game, do they replace the Live ones or can I earn both?

Although the question proposes L4D2 in the title, I didn't add the tag because both the question and the answers seem to apply to any game available to both systems. Unless someone can provide better input, that is. – Grace Note Aug 23 '10 at 13:57
In this case it's specific to Steam/XBL I think, there's another question about XBL/Games for Windows. – user56 Aug 23 '10 at 14:17

You get Xbox Live achievements if you play the 360 version, Steam achievements if you play the PC version

Steam achievements are completely separate from XBox Live achievements.
