Half-Life 2 Linux Support

TransGaming Technologies (thanks Voodoo Extreme and Half-Life Fallout) announces plans to support Half-Life 2 in the upcoming version 4.2 of Cedega, their Windows/Linux gaming portability program, planned for release on December 7. The announcement goes on to offer the obvious reassurance that Cedega 4.2 will run Steam as well.

Despite of what many of the linux enthusiasts want to, the reality is that linux as it's whole is not ready to replace the gamers OS at all, it's still a long way.

To make matters worse, game support will probably the last kind of support (fully) gained in the linux community. Purely because of the massive reliance on the latest hardware and drivers.

But my hope is it will change, as linux has proved it's worth as a far more superior game server platform.

What transgaming does is excellent, but it still comes down to not having native support. The real acceptance should still come from the industry itself.
