    unless they publish for PS3 online (download) or something similar the likelyhood of an indie going big time in todays world is slim to none.

    TA Spring, NetHack, Threaded Programming, Forums and Mailing Lists.

    But really, if we just get a slow but steady stream of amazing games like World of Goo, I'll not shed a tear for the loss of eight million sequels and ten half-hearted new properties.

    Awesome, hexen!

    I jest, it actually looks really nice. Downloading the penumbra demo now, thanks...

    By the way, for windows users - Steam is doing a UT3 free weekend this weekend, so if you're struggling to maintain interest in this game maybe you should check it out.

    I wish more game developers would start selling linux versions of games, instead of selling the windows version and offering a .bin in some dusty corner of their website.

    True. Shall we remember how DOOM was launched ? Linux didn't exist at those prehistoric times, and they launched it as shareware. I really see shareware in the same spirit as open-source today. I would figure that because of these shareware roots that ID now release each time for linux AND make the old engine available on open-source.

    Those guys have really understood how the software will evolve within the next 10 years. Epic has understood just a little.

    Unfortunately this won't work like this. This way Linux always gets the old titles, the aged titles. So the ID way helps us not to make Linux gaming stronger. That said neither does the Epic way.

    This is a ridiculous thing to say. Amateur-quality?? Ok, show me one amateur game that could even sniff the quality of UT3.

    I've played all of the UT series from day one, and UT3 is easily the best of them in every way possible.

    As far as the engine, there is a good reason so many titles are using the U3 engine - it's fantasticaly beautiful, and runs extremely fast.

    Well said.
    Concerning ID, they make available for linux their latest titles and open-source the older ones.
    So, ID really helps linux gaming. However, I add to your comment that ID-only support is not enough for making linux gaming stronger.
