However it looks like they will release with OpenGL 4 support. This is a quote from Josh Klint one of the developers (and owner):and presently uses OpenGL 2.1 for graphics.
the basic renderer uses OpenGL 2 and the high-end renderer uses OpenGL 4.
That is not related.
Never saw a Closed source engine with malware.
I expressed myself bad in that post.
I don't trully want to say that the engine has to be open source, but i wanted to say i don't care about that, many devs just don't want to give the code of their hard work, its normal.
I would do the same, but that won't stop me to support linux with love.
Its just that
Some of you miss the point. Before you had to build your Game in Windows or Mac and then port it to Linux, now with Leadwerks you can do everything without leaving Linux. You all should be excited by this if you care anything about Gaming on Linux. Things absolutely NEEDING to be Open Source is exactly what was holding Linux back, fear of proprietary Software. This mentality needs to stop for Linux to advance.
In any case, this is great news and yes I did back it. This is why I love the Openness of Linux, people that hate 'paid' software can just go hide in some distro that's fully Open, while the rest of us who want to see Linux advance; can use something more Mainstream like Ubuntu or OpenSuse. I use Xubuntu myself, I don't 'hate' Unity, I've actually never tried it to hate it. I just like how customizable and out-of-my-way XFCE is.
The way I see it, the more choices Linux gamers and potential game developers have, the better.
Those are some really great systems.
I use Linux everyday. Linux doesn't need to advance. Linux don't need more of anything.
If you're not happy with the current state of Linux, then please use Windows or OS X instead, they're great systems and have all these games and proprietary software you want.
Why do you want Linux?
Windows and OS X are superior in many respects to Linux.
The one great thing about Linux is the openness.
Who are you to tell people what OS they should run?
I have developed software for Linux since 1998 all my private coding is under Free BSD license because I like to share. I do not expect everybody to share.
