Because the news section is 99% trolls. There's only a handful of people that post anything on-topic or helpful in the news section. The rest just go out on their usual hate sprees. Example; News thread about Apple releasing a new product... Instead of talking about the new product, the Apple haters just roll in and start talking about about Apple, or why they hate Apple and everything off-topic. Usually they read 1 word from the title ( "Apple" in my example ) and just go off from there, not realizing that just because that word is in the title, doesn't make that what the threads about.
Same for Linux related threads. For some reason they always turn to either " Windows is better " or just flat out " Linux sucks, what's the point " threads. Just like every ATI/AMD/Nvidia/Intel/etc/etc threads that come up.
This site's main population is pure crap. Nothing but kids who don't have any forum etiquette, no manners, and overall bad attitudes. Hard to have any kind of discussion when the instant you disagree with someone they start name calling or other " insults. "
Posting Linux news, in the Linux section alleviates 99% of the problem by simply keeping the Linux news where the Linux people who are most interested in it, can and will find it. Sure we get the evangelical Windows fan-boy troll in here every once in a while, but they don't normally last long.
Anyways, this is great news. Another relatively good name in the fight of supporting Linux gaming. The more there is the further we can go, doesn't matter if they're old ports, indies, or new AAA titles... they all help toward the common goal.
