    It's less stable, it costs more per server, and it's something that can't be automated as readily. Client-side, Windows is "okay" for games, it's, as Linux users all know, not anywhere near as good for headless stuff as Linux is.

    I know, just had to point out the obvious.

    Not buying UT3 until the Linux client is released. Almost half of the year past already.

    If there was more linux users, like in the hundreds of thousands, voicing their protest, in an organized way, they might listen. As of now, they just dont care.

    Look at the bright side, the price will keep dropping. UT3 is at $30 US now.

    Let's wait then until the price goes below 10$, usually bargain bin price.

    Well, I think we do have enough people to get their attention, its just things aren't quite organized enough, people aren't stepping up, I guess some people think that things just take care of themselves when this is not always the case. But I will say that nagging them is not the solution.

    The best way to bring it about is to do it in a way where we aren't annoying them yet are bringing a strong point across. Something the community and the people would recognize. But all of this takes organization and alot of care.

    Well I wrote to about 20 mainstream news tech sites about the situation, the total number of sites willing to do a story on it was 0. You even take a look at the diggs on the subject and interest was low. It's at the point now where you wonder if Epic would even bother spending the capitol to work around legal issues. The story couldn't even get a 1000 diggs, so you have to look at it from Epics point of view and look at the return on investment. Right now it just doesn't make financial sense.

    Well, at least I can thank Epic for not having to upgrade my 7900 GTX to be able to play UT3 in WUXGA.
