    Default Can we PLEASE stop saying "year of the linux XX"

    It's really just making us look like idiots. maybe this will break out linux gaming, maybe it won't, but running around declaring it the year of linux gaming will only hinder it after 50 years of "the year of the linux desktop" turning the whole idea into a massive joke.

I guess.
    I actually only drink beer like once a week or every other week these days...

    As a member of the beta testing team on OldUnreal, I have to note that Unreal on Linux has been out for at least a year now, so it's not that new. It's also not an official effort, but a fan-made port (albeit with the approval of Epic Games; it would have had a Mac OS X port, too, if not for the lack of approval from Epic Games...). And it does work very well.

    I suppose not everyone knows about it, though, so thanks for raising awareness of it

    I just can't see this happening. I just can't see Capcom porting Resident Evil to Linux, so this means the gaming industry is still console and Windows centric.

    I don't agree.
    For starters: If you keep on repeating big lie, eventually people will believe in it.
    Secondly: I actually do believe it will be year of Linux, and more likely a decade of it. It already started. Steam is just first right sign of it.

    It began not cause of market penetration or superiority of the system, but because of Microsoft and Apple are abusing devs, put them into corner
