Oh, you are right.

Well, if a game I like runs on linux - natively - I'll pay for it. Otherwise, why would I ?
The trend is simple when looking at the games bundles, the linux crowd pays more. I assume this is because the offer for it is quite limited despite the desire to play some serious games. The message is something like "Hey, I'm here on linux and willing to pay even more than I'd pay if I were on wndz !".
Anyway, it would be a nice feat to see DE on a linux bundle. That bundle would surely see my money !
i dont really care if its using some kind of wrapper or is native, as long as i dont take performance hit and get the same graphical details as those "other operating system" users
i buy if i like the game..i even buy games when they run good in wine...doesnt really matter for me.
alltho if the game has native port, im supporting the developers sometimes even if i dont play the game much.
like i have done with lots of indie titles..i mostly play them few levels or something and then i never open them again.
