        It's worth mentioning that we already have eduke32 for playing Duke Nukem 3D on Linux, both with the original appearance and with enhanced graphics.

            Ironically the eduke32 Gentoo ebuild bug report has been seeing a lot of activity this past week and I think it may hit the Portage tree very soon. I think it looks better than this new port.

              The steam version can plays in classic mode via DOSbox, as well as a OpenGL rendere.

                  Right now off of gog http://www.gog.com/gamecard/duke_nukem_12 and then just run them in dosbox, I seriously wouldn't hold my breath for anything more than a dosbox'ed version assuming that Id/Apogee even still has that code.

                  Manhattan Project might be something they'd port though.

                      Apogee is the legal name for 3D Realms and it was known as that before 1994. I don't think ID was involved though, they developed Commander Keen, which Apogee published, but Duke was done entirely by Apogee.

                        Yes I'm aware apogee was involved, I remember playing the games when they came out. I wasn't very clear with my post. I was questioning the I'd part.

                          ID was not involved in any of the Duke Nukem games.

                            This will definitely help Linux gaming. Especially if the quality of the updated OpenGL version is better than the old VESA (super sharp high-resolution) graphics mode that the original had. I can't wait to play it!

                              Unless you want the Steamworks integration or desperately need the data, you might as well buy it from gog, or even better, the 3D Realms web-store directly and put it into EDuke32. I grabbed it off of the AUR on my Arch system and it is running beautifully and cleanly, and I do not need to worry about DRM. Of course for those who don't care you could hedge your bets and setup both.
