    Just imagine the mess, every othe major game dev bringing games to linux focusing Ubuntu/Mir, making other distros in tough situation (It may be easy then to make other distros not compatible). I...

    As soon as you start needing cross-platform, OpenGL is the next logical API to target. Some devs totally ignore(d) the possibility of future ports, and now end up with bad ports (Witcher 2) or a...

    Well, that's somehow true. That does not matter though, it only lessens the impact of d3d, not the other way round.

    Well, I am not that sure of that. Nowadays, the AAA gaming genre spits out titles to PS3, PS4, X360, XBONE, PC, MAC. Only 3 out of those 6 are D3D compatible at all, so the engines are pretty API...

    I get that it may be a good short-term marketing decision, but it is a lousy long term decision, because it means that the API will probably have a short life. It depends on what they'll do after...

    AMD's attitude does not make much sense - they are locking the specs of that API against GCN with no intention for input from other architectures. This gives me only mild hopes of any further Mantle...

    Even if they got Mantle support to mesa/gallium3d, it would still need support from official NVidia, nouveau is not really a choice for gaming so far and legacy applications depend on OpenGL.

    Certainly they won't do it if it is in hands of AMD. They could, though, hand it to Khronos.

    Call me when Intel and NVidia support it, otherwise this will only mean more complications.

    Well this might be another reason for the push. Ports are happening, but there's no need to rush them. Also, they need a proper steam controller support, which takes time.

    Well with my rig (GTX 770, core i5), the framerate is not as good as on windoze, did not find a way to objectively measure so far, but it seems to be way lower than VSYNC (60), kind of choppy/jerky.

    It's not a FPS, it is a 3D RPG. Kinda cinematic, story-driven with some limited freedom of exploration, i.e. not linear.

    Well it seems to be a runtime wrapper (as wine) but it is not wine. It seems the eon2 code is entirelly custom. Still, it is not a recompile, rather just a loader for windows binaries. A pity.

    I hope you're right. That would contrast with the fact the mesa drivers are not advancing very fast in regard of full GL 4.* support.

    You know, playing CS:GO with it will probably be still incomparable to mouse and keyboard, unless of course they introduce a controller only matchmaking option. I want the controller for other games,...

    I wish, but I don't think so. No reason to believe that yet. I think they have their hands full and don't have the time to port CS:GO and Portal 2. On the other hand I believe I read somewhere there...

    Yep, the state the catalyst drivers are in calls for AMD to instead invest some more dev time into the mesa drivers instead. Just seeing how well it went with intel (although they do not use...

    Really looking forward to see what the SteamOS is like. I have a few spare HDDs that I may as well try to fill with it to see how well it works.

    Also, I just hope the SteamOS release will mean a...

    Besides, whatever, I think they could as well come up with a loophole - sell windows version, give linux binaries for it for free. There. If activision prohibits to sell linux version, maybe this...
