"You guys are stupid if you think that GMod is coming out for Linux.. Linux doesn't even have HL2.. or Steam. I was compiling the server." - Gary Newman's Twitter feed refuting Linux source client.
Oh god steam is coming to Linux, again! I told you last year and the year before and .. but this year it's really coming, trust me! It's like fscking groundhog day.
Or, as the saying goes: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
Phoronix have just got to be careful that their failure in reporting gossip a year ago w.r.t. "end of the summer Its confirmed " crap they pulled and keep pulling with STEAM doesn't cause their other news to be tainted.
When some random modder on the net starts laughing at the "news" site you know its gone on too long
Maybe Michael had a reason to believe good things were coming our way from Valve and maybe he didn't. After this latest Twitter monkeyshine however, I believe Garry Newman can go get bent.
In fact, I'm sick to death of being told we're good enough to run servers, but not good enough to get first-class treatment in the consumer software department. And now we're suddenly stupid if we think we're going to get that treatment? Gabe, you need to reign in your dog. He's making you look bad.
What you've done sir, is ensure I will not be purchasing your little mod for any platform. We are not stupid, Mr. Newman. We are hopeful. We are hungry. We keep doing everything we can so our favorite platform will be supported by developers who we admire and love. ...And we get kicked in the face for that love and hope. You couldn't be a bigger dick if you tried.
Kindly stop using Linux as well. I hear it's bad for the I.Q.
You know that GMod requires one of the other Valve source games to be installed to work, right? How is a Linux native client supposed to work without any of the other games being ported first? It's a MOD.
So, Michael: Please stop with the headline's that get everyone's hopes up without first doing the most basic research.
BTW: GMod works great under Wine.
In other news, Acme Insurance sells an offer lot of hurricane insurance in Florida but they haven't got a single client yet in North Dakota.
Anyone who thought his news announcement meant a Linux client was coming isWe are not stupid, Mr. Newman.
If I had a bunch of frothing-at-the-mouth Linux nerds coming after me with questions because of Michael's usual crazy-ass bullshit "news" posts, I'd get pretty irritated with the Linux community, too.
The royal "We" is so much fun. What have "we" done, exactly? "We" don't seem to have done anything besides whine on forums about how the actual game devs aren't going out of their way for "us."We keep doing everything we can so our favorite platform will be supported by developers who we admire and love.
I suspect there will be some developments dealing with the steam client soon, but it really is frustrating to see how deceiving michael's posts can be. The gmod update was obviously for the servers.
