    Have you read about “VU and Tribes” story on this
    site? Well, I doubt that the petition will go well
    because VU and Blizard are going to do money and nothing other. Hurrah for Epic and ID!

    petition for HL source code == fail
    petition for HL2 port == fail
    tribes 3 port == “no way”
    release tribes 2 for free == “not be giving away”

    freecraft == killed
    petition for WoW == ????

    Also if they want to reach 20.000 votes it culd take eternity to get them.
    Even HL2 petition taks only 6000 votes.

    There is one company who’s games I won’t buy even if they are ported to Linux and that is Blizzard. I hope they do NOT port them as I would feel bad not being able to buy a Linux game. They can take their DMCA-happy lawyers and loud-mouthed uneducated high-school drone-customers.

    People can try to change something or not.

    I try, I sign the petition.

    They are not worth my money. (see what they did with Freecraft and bnetd)

    Even a Linux port won’t help them.

    And btw. did i mentioned that Savage: The Battle for Newerth from S2Games is a lot better than this Warcraft 3 crap from Blizzard?

    Go buy Savage and turn away from Blizzard’s products.

    These comments don’t really inspire me to lobby for a Linux port of WoW.

    I’m going to have to step in line with the “troll’s” here in that I can’t see myself supporting people that treat their potential customer’s like crap. The DMCA moves they’ve been making don’t inspire confidence.

    How does that saying go.. “When the revolution comes, you’ll be the first up against the wall.”

    That about sums it up. They can blow.

    I know that many dislike blizzard because of their actions against freecraft and bnetd. But hey, that is the world that we live in. I think that many game companies would do the same, remember that Q2 mod, Quake Generations that was shutdown by ID software, yet everyone seem to adore John Carmack and ID. Like a few of you have argued Blizzard is one of the game companies that can sell games because of their name, Diablo2 wasn’t so good, Warcraft3 wasn’t either, yet alot of players seem to buy them. World of Warcraft might be better and I would like to see it coming to linux. Do as you wish, one of the few thing a consumer can do is to chose where to spend its money, if you hate Blizzard, don’t buy Blizzard.

    I’d buy WoW and other Blizzard games if they were ported to Linux; I’m always looking for some good new games to play. bnetd and freecraft deserved to be shutdown: what they were doing was unoriginal and uninteresting. Then again, at least they weren’t working on the Quake source.

    WoW is worth it, played a beta version and the graphics and gameplay really are pretty good.

    I notice that while BNetd no longer exists (as a formal entity anyway) all their work is now in at least 3 other BNet server emulators that haven’t heard so much as a peep from VU. Apparently being high profile gets you bitten in the ass in the open source world.

    God I hope a decent DMCA case gets sent before the Supreme Court soon!

    Penny-Arcade has a comic for you fat ugly freeloading win32 users out there…

    the barratrous legal actions versus the bnetd project are ceased indefinitely. If Vivendi wants loyalty from me, they will have to atone for their past transgressions as a prerequisite.
