At last, NOW is the time for the #Linux-Gaming-Revolution!! As I predicted in 2009, "... we are set to see the glory of the GNU/Linux operating system take hold as the prominently used end user platform for computers everywhere." Get your Freedom On! Switch to GNU/Linux!!

I still think Linux has a ways to get yet, but this is just the beginning.

I await for this revolution to falter..

I don't want it to but I remember all the Mac guys jumping for joy when Steam supported Mac. A year on and there are still only 10-20 games on Steam coded for Mac out of over 2,500. As always this depends on developers actually giving a shit about Linux and if it's like their embracing of Mac they won't give a shit.

Since Steam supported Mac a good 200 new games have released and one of them Portal 2 supported Mac. The rest didn't as it's extra work, work developers do not want to put in for a platform that is tiny in comparison to PC. The issue I see happening is Linux is even more underground than Mac, I just don't see the average developer coding a Linux version as it's an extra cost they won't want to spend.

I hope this works out but Linux won't get a huge revival from this as the fact is Linux has one game, PC has over 2,500 on Steam alone. I go where there games are and I assume many other PC gamers do the same.

Well the reason mac doesnt have that many is it harder then hell to do anything with Mac because of how locked up it is. Linux will do good i think.
