    It has to be StarCraft 2. D3's gotten boring after a month. WoW's always been boring because of it being an MMO. SC2 however ... already played >2000 matches, still fun.

    Default But Blizzard must know how many existing users are using Wine.

    I would try a native Linux WoW client. It would need to be at least as functional as the OpenGL client under Wine, but I would be disappointed if it were only equally functional. And I use Fedora instead of Ubuntu.

    WoW is already mostly ported, Diablo 3 isn't news... I assume it's the forthcoming StarCraft II addon.

    Default WoW being ported is a reason to release it.

    So why not release it, if it already exists? Wouldn't that be the cheapest option because there'd be less to lose.

    Well, I'm pretty curious how much Mr. ML will milk this topic. Since steam is pretty much mainstream and drying up, this looks like a potential visit-attracting cow.

    So they will port an already released game? Fine.

    ...release for Ubuntu Linux...
    It's getting tiresome to read this with every major announcement of a Linux port. :/
