    How stable is the linux beta? better to wait for the final game?

    You can play the beta with the demo version they have. You’d need Windows/Wine/whatever to extract those files, but will be playable otherwise.

    The linux beta is very stable from my testing. I bought the thing- it’s kinda wierd- buying beta’s. Anyway, I bought it and everything works well. The only thing missing is network play. It’s essentially a lan or single player game now. Windows people say the linux beta is faster than the windows version. I don’t know, cause I ain’t touchign windows- but there you go.

    The game data file for the demo (it’s the same for the retail also, you just enter your auth key to unlock the content) is linked in the forum thread above.

    Also, you can play multiplayer with other Linux users or Windows users running beta 2.
