QUAKE LIVE Mac & Linux Status

The QUAKE LIVE Forums have a lengthy update on the latest goings on with id's multiplayer shooter. Amid all the details is a status report on the Linux and Mac editions of the web-based game:
Mac/Linux
These have proved more difficult than expected, but we're getting close. We expect to also be testing Mac and Linux versions of QUAKE LIVE internally this month and then making those publicly available just as soon as we feel they are ready. This work is being done by a separate programmer in parallel with the other work that we're doing, and is his only priority - point being, that this is a top priority for us and not being delayed because of other work.

Linux is crap, theres a reason no one uses it, and Hardware/Software manufacturers/developers ignore it it the main, it sucks, has next to zero market share, is way to fragmented, everything is harder to do than it needs to be. Linux sux

I'm looking forward to the linux port, my home machine is dual boot and apart from Quake3/Quake4/Doom3/W:ET/ET:QW I use Windows XP for gaming - generally I'll agree for gaming XP and as a general desktop XP is great.

My old work laptop(which I'm still using 90% of the time) is XP and I can't play Quake Live - damn punkbuster crap kicks me out all the time - I've tried all the things people suggest but it still kicks.

My new work laptop is Kubuntu 9.04 so I'm really hoping for Quake Live on linux soon!

FF different in KDE vs Gnome ? that's very strange, I've not noticed any problems, I've been using openSuse and Kubuntu for a while and FF seems fine, slightly more work to get the flash plugin's etc but all my favourite extensions work fine. Are you using decent video drivers ? I know KDE is more intensive on the video card.

The problem I have with using Linux as a surfing OS is that the Linux version of FF seems to lag behind the Windows one with regard to the general UI & smoothness - I think its okay in Gnome now, but its hideously clunky in KDE (which is what I use)...

Glad to hear that they are making Linux a priority! I dual boot OpenSUSE Linux and Windows. Windows is used 95% of the time to play games and I haven't had any issues with Windows for 2 years now. I HIGHLY recommend Linux as your work and surfing OS and Windows as your gaming OS.
