    Phoronix: Egosoft Wants To Bring Games To Steam On Linux

    In part due to Steam now being available on Linux, Egosoft wants to hire a Linux game developer to continue bringing their X3 games to the penguin platform...

    Wonder if I can somehow insert my original LGP license into steam...

    Beyond that, hopefully X3:TC and AP will be next (though at least X3:TC works just fine under wine )

    The complete X series is on Steam "Flash Sale" with a discount of 75% for the next 3 hours.
    Sounds like a very good deal.

    More like
    Arch == One of the Unknown Linux

    At least openSUSE does the same (no hint in user agent):
    Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/16.0

    And I'm sure many others do the same.

    Where did they get their Arch stats? Complete horse sh*t.

    As a webpage would see me. (nothing to indicate Arch)

    Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/16.0

    as my computer is

    uname -a
    Linux (user name removed) 3.6.6-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Nov 5 11:57:22 CET 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Arch == Unknown Linux that's why the number is big.

    Ah, I thought you were trying to refute the claim that most GNU/Linux users use Ubuntu.

    Speaking of which, how do they know what distribution is being used to begin with? I thought it wasn't added to the agent string...

    It is added to the user agent, as extra branding, by some distros only.
