Desktop Linux (including all distros ) has less than 6% market share, there is no market for linux gaming. Linux is good for server technologies though

Until we see that percentage magically rise we are not gonna see too many games.

I wonder though

How well a Source Game would run under linux

I know the "ports" emulating the game on linux were horrifying, I had a friend playing Warhammer Online through Linux and it was one of the most pathetic things I had ever witnissed.

My question is, why can Linux OS not utilize D3D?? if it is a Microsoft Thing, wouldnt that be considered Monopolizing?

Linux is a great OS for Desktop use. Anyone who says otherwise has never truly tried Linux. I use it 24/7 on all of my machines. And it even runs most Windows games (via Wine) perfectly fine with little to no issues. MW3 runs 100% great through Wine. BF3 Can't at the moment because Wine is capped at DX9 ( but they are already integrating DX10 into it, at which point BF3 will be playable ( with at the most, a few bugs to work out ). And while some of the FOSS programs are not completely up to par with Microsofts suites (office/visual studio/etc), they still keep up quite well for being, for the most part, hobbies. Few are funded by any major companies, while Microsoft has billions to throw at their devs.

There's millions of Linux users who would gladly pay for games on Linux. No mainstream big publisher has had the balls to dip his toes into the water yet though. That and not having the DX API turns a lot of them off, even though OpenGL can easily keep up with DX.

And gaming is holding back a LOT of people from using it more often. As well, Microsoft will always have the lead on Market share, no matter what. Unless they suddenly crash and burn. They got there first, and got all the OEM's to preinstall Windows on every machine that most people use today. Had Apple wanted to, they could have done the same, and today would of been a radically different world.

So, according to some people there's around a billion PC users, with more than half of those in developed countries (and that's old data).

6% is not an insignificant number.

Why would you go through all that trouble when you can get the game working flawlessly on a $100 OS (even less if you get student discount)?
There is no point in spending that much time and energy to get a lesser experience just to save a bit of money. Besides, with games costing $60 each at launch, I really don't think asking $100 for an OS that will last you 3+ years is too much.

Do want. If they can get this out by the end of the year, I would be so happy. I like Wine but trying to debug driver issues with specific steam games under it is a pain.

Using Linux isn't about cost. I use Linux because it works for me, because I've used it for almost 10 years now.

And as much as I'm not a fan of Stallman, his quote " Think of free speech, not free beer ", imo accurately represents why a lot of general people use Linux.

And honestly, it isn't much trouble at all to get things working.
