Basically i can understand JC, but i dont see it so negative. First of all with the right gfx card you can play Rage with wine. It does not work with Intel onboard and it did not work with fglrx and my hd 5670, but worked even with my old nv 8800 gts 512. And that works so well because of OpenGL - D3D games run MUCH slower. The id developer who did the Linux ports left the company so maybe a bad timing to ask for one. In the case that steam will be successfull on Linux (or a steambox) i am sure somebody will work on it. It would be good when at least fglrx could run Rage via wine - i see no huge diff to a possible native game, so amd devs should not put their head into the sand all the time. Rage got that bad reputation mainly because of bad amd opengl drivers. While there is no cuda support for amd cards one thing is however interesting: there is no nvidia sli profile but a crossfire one (on win).
No announcement yet.
