    Am also interested in Linux support. But they haven't released the source code so binary distribution will be hard across multiple distros.

    Considering there is no Linux version of UE3.. I don't think they will make a UDK for Linux.

    I thought UE3 did have Linux support. Source: http://www.devmaster.net/engines/eng...ails.php?id=25

    I would like to see this myself, I'm currently working on an open source project that is designed for windows and linux, and if UDK were to go linux supported, it may become easy to justify using UDK for developing it (not quite as open source, however still possible to use).

    Binary is easier to deploy then source versions. Since during compiling you need dependencies (libs sources), which is more difficult, then a precompiled (with included .so files). And all distributions can run it.
    But, since this is proprietary software, the source release is not possible.

    Look at for instance Maya for Linux, it's binary only too, and installs perfectly on every distribution. (other examples are: VMware, Skype)

    The only difficult part would be packaging the release for every distro's own package format (.deb for ubuntu is different then that of debian).
    But that can be solved by using "SELF" for the installer, or a crossplatform installation tool.

    Looking at the Official website for UE3 shows it only runs on PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. I'm inclined to believe that.

    from that website:
    Unreal Engine 2 supports DirectX8 and OpenGL on PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox, and PS2
    so maybe Linux was just supported for version 2...

    So, it doesn't run on MS Windows either?
