    If you really want to bring more games to Linux, I'd say your time is better spent porting something like Ya3dag: http://www.ya3dag.de/page_about.html

    (or any other FLOSS Windows-only game)

      Heh... It was done with an unauthorized release, but not an unauthorized copy. The original port was done by an iD employee, one Dave Taylor, using his access to the source code in question to produce the version in question, and released the first couple of releases without iD's permission. If it was the same thing, you'd not have had the patches pushed back into the source tree like they were with that situation.

        It was an iD employee? That makes the story a lot less interesting, but makes sense I guess.
