    I saw GTA is avalible as a free download for windows. Someone might should investigate the possibility of source release to make a linux client.

    It’s a shame that game companies expect us (the linux users/server admins/etc) to support the windows game playing clients.

    I’d expect some of these servers to have a 50% downtime, since the people running it will have to reboot into windows to play the game they were running the server for in linux.

    - Nobody in particular

    I’d like to play battlefield 1492, but I have a feeling that by the time it’s ported, Doom3 will have arrived at my doorstep. And lets be honest, which will have more mod’s and clans and users?

    Oh well, it’s a good thing there are so many windows gamers out there. This linux thing is just a fad I think.. my grandma even emailed me from her mandrake box telling me so. It’s just aweful. So lets go ahead and take a look at the future for a second here…

    I think(don’t laugh- I really do! :/) that the basic problem with these middle of the road gaming folks is that they were raised on MS and don’t know how far MS’s(DX) fist is up their colon. I’m sure that every company would like to release a Win/Unix/MacOSuX port… but you know- they’re just too stupid(i.e.- see NWN). It takes some forethought and use of non-MS products to make a standards portable game. This doesn’t seem to be common knowledge just yet, even though Carmack has been doing this for ohh… I can’t count that high.

    I realize that it may be hard enough to push the envelope in revolutionary coding like in BF1942, but I would like to formally ask these gaming folks to please try. In the end, you are killing yourself if you don’t. Here’s why-

    Numbers are great until they are too great- then MS comes to your door, hammers it closed, and sets your ass on fire. Remember the last thing they created?.. yea, neither do I. Carnage salad. Resistence is futile. You will be ass-imilated.(again i.e.- NWN rumors)

    It must be a artist thing.

    Wasn’t that exciting.
