This is really great news. Imagine just how many more fans will start using Linux and stop buying Windows when more games like this one become available for the Linux OS.
Let's not get our hopes up, just yet. Linux still has a long way to go for it be a viable gaming platform. Mainly because of the old that DirectX has over the market. OpenGL, as good of an API it is, has its drawbacks since a lot of times, different vendors will implement the API differently on some levels. However, between OpenGL and DirectX, OpenGL is a much more robust graphics platform than DirectX>
Today I have set a new record for being in Linux. Up in Linux for 2 days, 7 hours, and 6 minutes. I could have set this record a lot sooner if my mother did not need to get to her slideshow every freaking hour, making all these damn "finishing touches."
And she's still not done with it! But she's gone for the weekend with my father, so for now I can finnaly use Linux in peace.
Awesome! Linux does take some adjusting, but once you get the hang of it, using it becomes less and less of a chore and something that's actually fun. My Gentoo Linux server has been up for about three weeks now, and this server has been through all kinds of crap. I was emerging KDE on it (for certain utils) and transferring data back and forth using Samba, and the data transfer went without a hitch. My laptop's very responsive with Gentoo on it as well, I can't believe how fast KDE runs in Gentoo.
In all, using Linux has been one of the things I really had to struggle to keep using because for me, I would go back to Windows. Now that I'm more comfortable reading man pages, I'm beginning to look at Windows with disgust. Come to think of it, it's time for me to reformat Windows anyways....
