The real problem with linux, is the support between the driver and the api. Wine does this pretty well, though native support for games would work better, valve does seem to be committed to it. Especially since they're working to port all of their games natively.

This is about OPEN SOURCE DRIVERS in Linux Kernal
A) NVIDIA has good Linux propitiatory drivers its just the Open Source ones only pushed out 1/3 FPS so 20 instead of 60 FPS

B) ATI (not ATI) is MUCH better then NVIDIA: AMD released their drivers into Open Source Land 3 years ago. It's just people still think ATI of 5 years ago. Its like the myth that AMD CPU is good for games and INTEL cpu is better for business???????

Open GL is dead in the water WHAT?????
Open GL is far from dead and really could take over this DirectX crap.

It's really starting to happen. Momentium in Linux as a gaming platform and I really think in 5 years we could see a whole new kind of PC ecco-system.

But whta in the world is being Open Sourced? It is still proprietary and it is wierd for people to say everything Linux is Open Sourced?????

Don't games have a HELL of a time working under Linux? Would they then make sure all their games worked? Seems pretty difficult to muster doesn't it? Or what? Have L4D2 work and that is it? pfft. Not worth the effort....

Actually Linux isn't hard its the graphics drivers that can cause the issues. Thank You NVIDIA! Google Linux creators love for them. Anyways I still can play a ton of FPS and other games at a good FPS in Linux running Wine so it is worth the effort.

BUT Linux and Mac OS are very similar in terms of graphics and so it really isn't "hard." Really worth it if we can leave M$ behind and get our own "Gaming OS."

Best technique for man stove chicken breast. Brick wrapped in foil and placed on the chicken. Also never "sear" it just dries up and toughen meat. (Except London Broil)

Apple use to recommend anti-virus for OS X till 6 years ago when they removed it when it became public. No OS is virus free and it is false advertising.
OS X has a better over all security structure, but it is not remotely secure as Windows 7 is right now.

Only Valve can remake a 10 year old game and people think it is new.

Seriously was looking forward to DoTA2 after playing League of Legends. The game just feels like old DoTA with awesome graphics. I prefer League of Legends to my great surprise!

Reason why Linux is a flop? Well M$ under cutting the cost of Windows. Aggressively dominated by corporations that have billions of dollars.

I am ok with Linux being 2% and part of the reason why I love it so. Plus most people don't want a flexable OS they want a cage that is OS X and told what to do and see.

Now Steam and Source being ported to Linux could really help the numbers.
Humble Indie Bundle!
Great proprietary apps coming out:
Aftershot Pro (RAW Work Flow) cost $60
Lighworks!!!! (Beats Final Cut Pro) and cost $60 a year out this year!

Long live Linux and KDE

Looking forward to the day of OS parity where it doesn't matter what OS you chose, everything will run.
Never going to happen sorry.
Closest you will get is things like cross platform stuff like java, or emulators.

Exactly we are moving into higher languages and operators. Java works now. Emulators are inherently more secure do to the "Sand Boxing." But everyone making programs with "Cross Platform" in mind makes me happy.

If everyone just stayed with OpenGL and moved away from Windows centrism DirectX we would be 3/4 of the way there.

Linux already runs Steam Source well with Wine and it is easier but cost $$$ for CrossOver to run them.

Linux does everything well and somethings WAY better. Being able to play Steam Source and Linux games through Steam makes me smile. Valve being able to make a box would be awesome for them but me a hard nose geek makes my day.

Right now I use Arch Linux and I can get League of Legends working till a patch breaks something. Would be great to not have to use CrossOver games or Wine to run Valve games now. Looking forward to the day of OS parity where it doesn't matter what OS you chose, everything will run.

Yeah glad Google is backing up Linux since it uses Linux for everything at Google and they give the two choices of wither OS X or Ubuntu to employees but now this???

Corel AfterShot is my go to program now. Just purchased it.

Not pay to win. It is soooo much better then I thought it would be.

It's like saying League of Legends is pay to win. Most of the stuff is just pay for convenience and flashy things.

Well this is good for everyone. Steam needs to have some serious competition or else we will get screwed. Also DRM Free is extremely important!

Well I am seeding it on my FIOS connection now at 300 kbs so hope to get this out. So far my ratio is 5:1 I am hoping for a 100:1 by tomorrow

Wing Commander was orginally written on an Amiga computer but it never came out on that machine
