    I was hoping someone was going to start one of these. Without petitions, linux gaming would be impossible. Thank-you visionary petition guys.

    mr. sincerity.

    I would love to have SC2 on linux but I don’t see that happening. Blizzard doesn’t need to foster any goodwill when they have a country of fanboys.

    I dunno about you guys but if it works well with Wine I’ll probably still buy it. If it doesn’t work with wine I’ll pirate it. (Since playing it would require a reboot I’d only play the single player campaign anyway) Obviously if there was a linux version I’d buy it in a second, assuming I survived the shock of Blizzard making a linux client.

    I’d buy a linux client.
    A windows client?
    No way.

    If there will only be a windows client, well ok… i can also live with that, but I won’t use it. :)

    Please Blizzard,

    Do a Linux client too! If there would be a client for Windows and Linux, everyone could be happy!

    I think the petition was a little ‘all over the place’, so to speak. There are at least 3 different requests there:

    – Linux installers
    – Stipulation that the installer must be a .run file with CD detection (why not let them decide how they want to distribute their Linux binaries?)
    – Open source the installer. (How does this enable BSD and Solaris users to play again?) Note that open-sourcing the installer kind of makes the ‘must have CD detection’ point moot. People who wish to copy the game would just modify the source of the installer.

    I signed it, but I really think it would be more effective if it were a little more focused on one thing, namely just Linux installers.

    Yes, Blizzard, please release Starcraft 2 and it’s development-tools for Linux. You have released games for Mac OS. You can do it.

    I will definitely buy the linux-release of Starcraft 2 if there is going to be one.
