Hey guys, what do you think about this new?
Flame war. Getting all flame shields and and suits.
Pretty cool. :D I'm psyched to see that gaming on Linux is getting enough of a rise in popularity to make it worth developing for.

The Windows/OS X markets will continue to be larger for many years, so I can imagine they will still receive "premium treatment." But this is still good news for those who don't want to pay for an operating system.

As a side note, I'm curious whether they will port the security measures against cheating such as Warden. There's a base of Linux users that are aligned with the GNU project "free software" movement that will probably go up in arms about background programs collecting data.
