I heard on hak5 that Valve are in the process of trying to port Steam due in whole to the new Intel compiler, that was showing a 50-200% perfomance increase over windows for frame rates, heck even 60% better wine if it was compiled with the compiler.

Don't mess with me man... do you remember which episode? What about us AMD guys?

EDIT: Scratch that, found my own linky

From the article:
There have been rumors since last year that Valve may be serious about porting Source games to Linux after Valve Software began seeking a senior software engineer with the responsibility of porting Windows-based games to the Linux platform. Valve Software has yet to officially announce Linux clients for any of its software, but at Phoronix we have received information confirming that Valve is indeed porting its very popular Source engine to the Linux platform.

So, Source games are (soon) going to be a "go;" Guess I'm stuck w/ Windows for a little while longer...

Reader Rabbit!

I have two girls, age 4 and 6. I have shown them the GCompris suite, and the Childsplay suite, but those educational games suites seem more like a mashup of individual parts and lack cohesion. The Reader Rabbit suites (and others like them) may be somewhat more shallow, but they're alot more fun, and they do hold their attention, and so they really enjoy them. I have tried to get them working with WINE, with mixed results. When will linux parents really be able to share their computer with their kids?

One place that seems to be trying to organize reviews of Linux Games is LinuxGameZoo. Might be a good place to start.

Talking Angels Online!

Well angels Online would be a good aplication that would be great to play it natively on Linux, I can play it under wine, but is not so good.

Have a lot of fun!

In the future there will be a forum on the MSN website called "What games would you like to see ported to Windows?"

And I'm looking forward to it

ROTFL!

Still, fortunately I'm covered since I release my games for Linux, Mac, AND Windows

Smile Dirt, GRID and ....

Hi, I would like to see the ports of NFS-most wanted, DiRT, GRID and the forthcoming DiRT2. DiRT is just one fantastic game. I could pay as much as regular and maybe a little more.
