    Default Btrfs & Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

    Phoronix: Btrfs & Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

    What does the Linux Btrfs file-system and Valve's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive game have in common?..

    10 to 1, if there is a binary coming is a Linux server. It nearly always is. However since Source has been ported to OS X one suspects that a Linux port wouldn't be out of the question. One would just question the business reason in that, Linux is a 1% market share and not known for its excellent drivers nor an abundance of gamers. Hard to support and the pay off is low, I still say nay.

    If f-trees are a drop-in replacement for b-trees then btrfs shouldn't have too much trouble adapting them...

    The real question is - is the fractal approach patented? Assuming corps patent even the most ridiculous stuff - I bet it is!

    Doesn't mean much I think. The steam binary has had some code branches for linux since the original articles on phoronix and nothing came from that...

    Even if Linux is just 1% for now (I doubt) when there will be games on it, there will be no reason to use windows or os x. Sadly, this games isn't something I would buy.
