    UT3 Linux port

    Hello!

    I bought UT3 over a month ago and has still not been able to play it. This is because the promised UT3 Linux port is yet to be released.

    Even though a Linux client release has been promised, I'm starting to think that it might not be realized. Reading that Microsoft Game Studios will be using UT3 as their platform makes me wonder how much politics is going on behind the official discussion.

    As a big UT2004-fan I have always played on Linux, it was fast and very stable. I would be incredibly disappointed to hear that the plans for a Linux port have been canceled. If Epic denounces Linux as a target platform, <another famous multi-platform FPS producer name here> would have complete dominance in the Linux market.

    Although Linux gamers need Epic more than Epic need Linux gamers, I think that in the future more people will come to see that Linux is not only an OS for servers, but a great way to make a snazzy looking gaming platform due to it's superb OpenGL support.

    Longwinded, but sincere... Should I consider this a $50 loss or continue to be optimistic?

    Any official answer would be highly appreciated!
