    Nice

    I've been playing this game since it's launch on Windows and all I can say is that it's a great game, with nice graphics and you should definetely try it.
    I'm really happy that they're coming to Linux, I just wish that they will port they're previous game too (Scania Truck Simulator) which is also a very nice game.

    SCS, good job and good luck!
    Michael, thanks for the good news!

        Is this for training purposes... or for people who want to drive a truck but don't want the hours/pay it requires to make a living of it?

          I think it's for people that likes to play games and have fun.

                I'm pretty sure it's a game for entertainment, though you can learn from it just like you learn a (tiny) bit driving when you play rally games.

                  I know the idea of the game might sound boring, but I played the first Euro Truck Simulator and was pleasantly surprised.

                  Yeah it's not gonna be heart pounding excitement, in fact I found to almost be a kind of "zen" experience and quite relaxing, touring through Europe. And the realism and being able to manipulate the switches in the drivers cabin etc (like a flight sim) adds to the experience.

                  It's not for everyone though obviously, but worth a try, especially if you like sims.

                      its not just about driving around with the truck on long and boring roads.
                      its also about managing ur company, hiring new drivers, upgrading/buying trucks etc.
                      it sounds boring game on paper, but when u play it its actually pretty fun
                      i played the demo on wine, and was really good.

                      cant wait when the port is released..defenetly will buy it.

                        I wonder what the targeted audience is but reading the thread it looks like it could really find some followers. Maybe a bit of Truck education but also economy simulation which was (is?) a popular genre in Germany. But anyway it's good to see people taking notice of Linux and porting stuff.

                          That actually makes me more excited, because I only ever got to the driving parts and haven't tried the company management side of it, which could be interesting too.

                              The game may be great, but I can't help imagine the meeting where this idea got greenlighted.
                              "Okay, now you're sitting down for this, right? Yeah. I've got this idea for a new IP. You ready? A European truck driving simula .... HEY! WAIT! HEAR ME OUT, HARV!"
