    Not saying there aren't other advantages, however.
    oh noooo The Mir/Wayland war has found its way to this thread!

    On a serious note, and it may end up being a lame question, but why deal in numbers that are not concrete? Steam has every member's info. Why cant it query their members profiles and have specific numbers regarding what platform they are using?

    I am damn thankful for the work porting games over to Linux. Kidney stone operation kept me sidelined for a few weeks and I have been killing quite a few zombies from Killing Floor.

      Tim Sweeney said that voxel cone tracing is used to calculate lighting only in UE4.
