            No DRM, 64-bit support, cross-platform, mod support... Sounds good. Although personally I don't enjoy that graphics style. But then, mods are probably going to improve that; I'll have to monitor that space.

              This looks like it will be an awesome game. At the same time it's not my thing. I will readily admit that I totally suck at traditional RTS games and would get completely annihilated (pun intended) in this game. The only RTS games I am at all good at and like are smaller squad baded games without base building like Warhammer 40k: DoW 2. Still, I recognize that Total Annihilation was a terrific game, even if I did completely suck at it, am glad that this is coming to Linux, and wish this Kickstarter project nothing but success.

                  Never played TA-Spring, but if this game is similar, why not just play Zero-K?

                    I'm very enthusiastic with Valve and Linux but there is no doubt of KickStarter extreme importance for Linux gaming.

                        Supreme Commander

                        I've never played TA, but I love Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance which is apparently somewhat of a spiritual sequel to TA. If that's even slightly true, I'll be putting my money into this kickstarter.

                        On a semi related note: I'm soooo sick of all the FPS games in Linux... I'm far more of an RTS man. There are some FPS's I like a lot, and fortunately L4D2 is one of them.

                          These are the games Linux users can best support. Small, independent developers full of awesome. Every dollar counts for projects like this, and Linux users can make a very noticeable difference in the bottom line, and also help achieve thems stretch goals.

                            Indie games and Linux fit together. An indie developer gets much more benefit per sale then a big one. A few thousand sales to an Indie dev makes a big difference. Not so much to a billion dollar company. Indie can really use that extra profit.

                              Yup, that's what I've been saying for a while. Thats why Linux is important to so many Kickstarters. It's why Linux is important to Humble Bundles. It's also why I'm not so sure Steam on Linux is all that special, but there are a good number of indie games there so maybe I'll be proven wrong. There's a cost to porting to Linux, but the ROI is worth it for indie games, especially at indie game studio pay rates.

                              In any case, go give money to the Planetary Annihilation Kickstarter. It's the right thing to do.
