    I do imagine that is part of the concern. Could you imagine the opensource community screaming over a binary copy-protection blob on their systems? Although there are commercial applications out there that do incorporate some sort of copyprotection ie Maya

    Well UT3 already uses the best protection: you have to be online to save your status or of course when you want to play against others. In those cases the serial is verified.

    in Offline mode one can play LAN games and use Hamachi to get a LAN network simulated over the internet, so that protection is kinda obsolete

    There is no Linux binary for UT3. At least so far there is none and I don't assume that there will be one anytime soon...

    My son bought UT3 and I have played it a few times, however I could care less that there is no Linux client for it as I still like UT 2004 much better.

    The problem -seems- to be legal and/or licensing related, and as such, the fact that such binaries do exists means nothing.

    I've abandoned all hope of having UT3/Linux long, long, long ago. (Though I'd love to be proven wrong)
