BlueKoala: Damn, I missed the linux gaming angry session
Milyardo: Not too late
Milyardo: Fuck them game companies!
Milyardo: Give me linux binaries because I and a bunch of other people are ready throw money at you if you do
BlueKoala: The best idea is to use a multi platform engine
BlueKoala: Something tried and true
BlueKoala: To gather that extra revenue
BlueKoala: Which is probably only going to be very marginal
BlueKoala: But I'm willing to bet that as games come out for the platform, it will gain popularity
BlueKoala: And the gaming market on linux is gonna gain momentum
BlueKoala: Which is why I think having steam on linux early on is a great way to dominate the market
BlueKoala: So that as it grows it hold market share
BlueKoala: And increase profitability
BlueKoala: The money needed to be invested at this time is viable for the return
BlueKoala: But in the long run, I'm sure it'll pay off
BlueKoala: I bought savage 2
BlueKoala: Not because I particularly bought the game
BlueKoala: It was mostly out of principal
BlueKoala: It's fun, it looks cool
BlueKoala: But it's not shooting zombies
BlueKoala: Ultimately the games that I like more happen to be on a windows platform
BlueKoala: It's just too bad that I have so many objection's to microsoft's way of doing things
BlueKoala: They're the monster that they were set to slain in the first place
BlueKoala: Because face it, the big players before them were even worst
BlueKoala: Now linux is the freedom fighter microsoft once was
BlueKoala: But a lot cheeper
BlueKoala: And a lot more open
BlueKoala: I bet Bill Gates feels outdated by now
BlueKoala: Seems like a losing battle for ms
BlueKoala: When AMD gets FGLRX harmonized with the rest of the community I bet developpers won't be so reluctant to aim for a linux market
BlueKoala: They're doing well so far
BlueKoala: I think another 2 years an we'll be set
BlueKoala: What would help is if Ubuntu gets a new competitor equally popular and start a *nix war where both sides can benefit from each others' advances
BlueKoala: Patents are the evil in such environment though
