    Phoronix: Electronic Arts At Ubuntu Summit; Linux Games Coming?

    The news has been quick to spread today that Electronic Arts will be making a brief presentation at the Ubuntu Developer Summit next week...

    http://www.phoronix.com/vr.php?view=MTA5NTk
    This may well be the best contribution to Linux from Ubuntu, ever (if they don't make this a Ubuntu only solution...).

    Still, i am very very happy to hear this!

    That's true, but Linux needs games like Sims and NFS to gain more popularity. They suck, but they're popular.

    - Multiplatform release including Linux.
    - Release of legacy game engines (not the assets) under an open licence.

    ...and all your sins may be forgiven.
    You forgot one: Bring back the Wing Commander series that you completely ruined once you bought out Origin.

    That's no reason not to hate them. Sure, it would help Linux popularity. That would be awesome. But I'd still hate their guts.

    That. To put in Michael's terms: They are the AnhauserBusch of videogames.

    There are 2 points of view.
    1) we need it to make Linux more popular.(IMHO it will fail)
    2) People play this stuff.(no, they don't, not Linux fans anyway. Football is stupid anyway, not nerdy enough for PC game)
