    You've got to be kidding. It's clear this m$ troll registered, because he can't stand Battlefield 4 comes to Linux.

      Why doesn't DICE/EA release their games for Linux then? They make a lot of AAA games, I am sure the cost of porting to Linux would be easily covered by the sales. Especially since the game is already being ported to multiple platforms, the code already should have a lot of built in portability. If BF3 sold 2 million copies and Linux was 1% of those sales, that would be 10,000 * $50 = $50,000. I am sure that is conservative too.

        Now wouldn't it be funny if it ran on Mantle in Linux for AMD hardware.... atlest the drivers would be rather simple, less chance of AMD screwing it up. Says a current and future AMD (GPU only) customer.

          Using opensource radeon with HD5850, very fast 3D, very fast 2D, very good video acceleration, no tearing, runs very cool.
          Using TP-Link TL-WN722N [Atheros AR9271] and Edimax Technology Co., Ltd EW-7811Un [Realtek RTL8188CUS], 150Mbit/s, 802.11n on debian, no issues.
          Using networked Epson SX525WD(SANE epson2 backend, opensource+Gutenprint opensource) and HP C309g, scan and print wireless, photographic quality with CMYK pigment ink btw (impossible under windows with epson drivers) - no problem.
          I suggest you open bug reports and cooperate.

            ARMA 4 will be ported to Linux, too. Look at the dev's comment in steam forums of Arma Tactics!

            Funny math. Unrealistic numbers :-P

              Nope. I'm not calling anyone who does not agree with me (us) a troll (generalizations like his and yours, you know, is a way of trolling as well*) but anyone who says that he was using Linux for a dozen of years (ie back in tha hard days) but not anymore (now in the better days).
              Sorry, but disagreements differ from lies by a large margin.

              *all wi-fi drivers are crap...

              meh

                Optimus was NOT working at all in the time i bought my laptop, there was some alpha-kind of support, from Bumblebee

                Anyway don't blame me for the stupidity and fanatism of some kernel developers ( almost taliban-like)...
                And don't blame me for counting the money that i give for the performance i want... amd had the better chip for lower price point, so i bought it, and in windows i don't have any problems.
                I preffer to use linux tought, but i can't...
                Also I've posted enough bug reports and lost enough of my time, and as you know - time is money...
                Proprietary developers are cancer. They make any development impossible. They are taliban-like, as they cartel to monopoly and mass pre-install, using market shares as tools to block any better solution, milking money.
                You seem to have a lot of problems - if you care about solving them, work productive. If you do not care about solving them, stop wasting our time. If you continue trolling, you will be banned.

                  With Steam Machines being open platforms, how about EA and Ubisoft releasing Origin and UPlay clients for them..?
                  At least I don't see any technical problem with that, is there any? And I don't mean that you purchase those games from Steam
                  and start it through Origin/UPlay but actually buy it directly from the competing stores.

                  Not sure if Valve would still like the concept.

                      Mine works fine. ~300 FPS in counterstrike with full graphics detail settings... I have owned several AMD graphic solutions now and they have all worked great. I also own Intel/Nvidia so I am not trying to be biased, they just works fine for me. Of course I never bothered buying a hybrid but that is hardly all AMD based GPU's is it?

                        linux only needs 1 killer game ?

                        yea I think that will be HL3 !!

                        I think it will be SteamOS and may be linux exclusive for a while.

                        Battlefield would help Alot too.

                        They already made a lot of the base work, when they ported the FROSTBITE engine to mac:

                        http://www.groths.org/frostbite-game...ng-to-mac-osx/


                        As for Games, Linux is faster than windows, Valve already confirm it:

                        http://www.gamespot.com/articles/lef.../1100-6390089/

                        Apple and valve chose Nvidia for a reason. But I expect Amd with Mantle will hopefully improve their stuff.

                          There's two major things linux needs is a killer game and compatibility with Windows games. In other words WINE needs to improve massively.

                            Eh, or maybe we just like different games? First of all, I dislike games for morons you maybe enjoy. Remember too I could had installed anytime $ for free, a legal version legally installed. The only game worth it was GTA4 and for a while IL-2 for SEOW online campaigns.

                            With GNU/Linux I am happy to play Killing Floor, Left4Dead II, Team Fortress II for shooters and for brains Crusader Kings II. At times a quick peek on non AAA game on GNU/Linux is interesting if not worth the few euros spent.

                            I lost my patience waiting for Linux version of Baldur's Gate, so I bought the $ version from Steam and play it on Linux. Works perfect, and hence I can enjoy maybe the best game on the world trivially "click & play" style. Soon will come BG II, with that and the rest of games I own and what I will own, there is absolutely no need to defile my computer with a virus called $.

                            I have tons of NES and SNES games to study, even those are better than your shitty AAA games for morons. Games and movies of today are total shit when compared to old school games and movies. They lack depth, detail, story, all of which are replaced by first minute special effects and action for pop corn class mind numbness.

                            Have a nice day

                              If you play BG under wine, then consider give a look at GEMRB
                              http://www.gemrb.org/wiki/doku.php?id=start
                              it's, actually, a native port.

                                That would be awesome if they did do this. Right now i doubt if i will buy battlefield 4, but if they release on linux i will certainly buy it.
