    Only one of the following statements will become reality. Which one do you think it will be?

    * Amazon will f*ck up and let Linux users believe a swarm of top tier games are coming to Linux, despite the complete absence of an announcement from game studios
    * Elvis will return to earth, flying a UFO and drinking cherry cola purchased from an RC vending machine
    * 2011 will be the year of the Linux desktop (or was it 2010? I can't remember which year it didn't happen.)

    I really love the Phoronix picked this as a story. Phoronix is quickly becoming Linux tabloid journalism. All it is missing is the page 3 girl. That said, I wouldn't mind a page 3 girl in Phoronix. Who is with me?

    That "source" also says that it's coming out for Windows ME. This is ridiculous, how was this posted as an article?

    It is, as another poster described it, "click bait". And we all took it. I am sure the additional advertising revenue will be worth it if someone is dumb enough to paste this to /.

    There is plenty of real news to talk about without this kind of over hyped drivel.

    Someone emailed Amazon: http://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming...ersion/ccktcup and they said yes. I'm hoping it's true!

    Your quite optimistic.

    I am sure with a good bug report it could be solved but I am giving this card away in 2 days. So I won't have much opportunity to test any fixes that I get. Even if they did fix it tomorrow.

    A good bug report is also half the work...

    I was in agreement that this was a mistake, but I've just noticed the title of the game itself now says "2K Definitive Strategy Collection - Multiple (Windows and Linux): select platform(s)". Maybe this isn't an error?

    It was an error, so. Linux is no more listed on product page.
