    Would you buy UT3 either inmediately after a linux client is available, a few days later, would you consider buying it, or will you undoubtly not buy it?

    Didnt you say a few posts ago that you would mod the xbox360 so that it serves a completely different purpose? This is more or less like that too!

Which brings me to a cool idea. What if we all buy a ps3 to play ut3 on it? Then install linux on the ps3 and run the ut3 ps3 mod tools on it with wine, to create mods for ut3? I guess thats the closest thing to ut3 on the linux platform so far.
    You know... If it's not on Linux, it's just not worth all of that. Seriously. You're jumping through flaming hoops, buying a title for a different platform from the one you WANTED it to run on from someone that had a serious release date slip on you.

    If they ship here soon, I'll buy. Otherwise, it's just not worth all of that to me.

    Besides the fact that with the 75k I'll be dumping into it, I'd better get something from it...
    Heh... There IS a reason we were suggesting a slightly (in our opinion) better use of the $75k in the form of a slightly more general degree that'd help you accomplish a bit more if things went sideways on you for any reason.

    It's not that it's a bad choice. It leaves less room for error.

    I'm guessing it's because this thread isn't a thread. It's a poll.
    The minor fact that UT3 is on the PS3 prior to Linux not prevailing...

    You could just do what I did. Buy a PS3 with a bad disc drive for 100 bucks and replace the laser assembly yourself... there's quite a few youtube videos out there that disassemble the thing

    You've got to hand it though, a cheap 733 processor for 60 bucks from Gamestop, you can buy 4 of them for 240, and it would make for a decent distcc cluster, or just something specialized for different purposes... Yeah. it's not as good an idea than I originally thought, when you can get a 64-bit dual-core system for less than the cost of 4 of those machines. Best to do a PS3 for 100 (provided it can still read CD-ROMs, like mine did before I installed a new assembly).

    Why are people so obsessed with muttering about how off topic threads get?

    Well, I DID say if someone HANDED me one, I'd corrupt the thing completely from it's original purpose...
