        The biggest problem with Games on Linux is that, for most of the Games that come out now, chances are you probably played it years ago. What we need are exclusive titles and titles available at the same time as other Operating Systems; if we are going to advance Gaming on Linux.

        You can't release old titles that people have played and got bored with already, on Linux and expect great sales. If you're going to release those, then developers should set their sales expectations very low.

          Meh... I've got so many games that I've bought and haven't gotten a chance to play yet, so if someone takes a bit of time to release the Linux port, I probably won't really notice for a while. Yes, there are some new games that come out that I want to play immediately, but those are few and far between.

            ... I'd much rather releases like this (and let's face it we dont have too many games of this type on Linux) than none at all.

            Make no mistake though, times are quickly changing and more and more games are heading for us (even from day dot of release). Patience is needed though.

              The windows release dates from last year, hence that's not a old game...
