/me nods...That said, I have zero confidence in the 'fact' that UT3 Linux will ever be released, much less any kind of timeline. Epic doesn't owe me anything, but I will certainly take any announcements of future releases with quite a lot of salt.
I'd have to largely concur with that position. I've some small confidence that they'll release something. As to whether it'll matter, your guess is as good as mine. I'm none to happy with how Epic has handled this (but unfortunately, they may have had their hands tied by the agreements they have with other players in this sick story...) and it's tarnished their reputation with me at least a little bit.
