    I'm proud for you that you understand German. You're bilingual. We get it. But to start a post in English on an English-speaking site and then drop a (presumably) relevant quote in German, and then not provide a translation for that quote is just prick-waving. And before you mention Babelfish or some other translation program, you're trying to communicate. It's not supposed to be on the readers to mine for meaning in what you've essentially babbled at them.

          Sorry for misinformation, looks like I'm one more person who get confused because of server and client engine parts.

            There's this service called Google Translate, do you know it?

            I used it and Chet said Source SDK probably won't be released for Linux.

              Google translate will give you a pretty good idea of what is being said, but it's more economical for the person posting the information to do this once than to require every user that wants the information to go to google translate.

                No, I'm not. My translation == Google translation, so it would be innacurate.

                You're bilingual.
                Polish and limited English

                  Did you miss the part where I said requiring users to run to a translation program is bad form or are you just stupid? You even quoted me as saying this.

                    By cutting the sentence you missed part of the sense.

                    Chet said: "Probably not". Due to Steam SDK high reliance on OfftopicOS libraries.

                    Which means - its not released, because no one has made it crossplatform. YET.

                    One step at a time. If it works, second foot lands here.
