    Phoronix: UT3 For Linux Is Laid To Rest By Epic's Mark Rein

    Back in May we reported that Epic Games finally admitted that UT3 for Linux would likely never materialize. This first person shooter was released back in 2007 and was supposed to have a Linux client that was to be ported by Ryan "Icculus" Gordon. He was working on this Linux client as recent as last year, but it never was released and no other information was provided by Epic Games, Ryan, or other sources. In May we heard from Epic's Steve Polge that the Linux client would likely never materialize. Today we have been passed along a note from Mark Rein, the VP of Epic Games and creator of the Unreal Engine...

    Does this mean that you're finally going to stop writing about it? Or are you going to keep on with reports of "we asked them if they are really sure, and they said \"probably\""

          Yeah, right. Like official announcements ever were good enough a reason for people to stop speculating.

            Loss from those news towards Linux community itself low, an application to spend time around with and one of things to go around measuring the performances between operating systems.

            There are alot alternative ones and hopefully new ones on keep coming.

                  Human translation from Google Translate's Chinese->English to U.S. English:

                  The impact of this news upon the Linux community itself is low: it is only an entertainment application, and one of several options for cross-platform performance comparisons.

                  There are many alternatives, and hopefully new ones will keep coming.
                  And my response: Well, since it was never officially ported to Linux, it did a rather poor job of being cross-platform, didn't it?

                  But yeah, there are dozens of alternatives -- Free Software alternatives, or at least "free beer" ones -- for Michael to use for performance numbers. They're still not benchmarks, though.
