lol u are realy optimistic about Blizzard!
I think many software developer companies have some kind of agreement with Microsoft to limitate the supported OSs to the Windows series. Apple's system might be only included too becouse it's is just another capitalist company.
You know, for Microsoft it's still better if your money goes to Apple...

Not to mention Microsoft owns a part of Apple... Let's just say they own a byte (pun intended) of Apple.

Remember way back when all those shareware DOS games were all over the place? We need new versions of those for Linux.

Talking Game ported to Linux? How about .....

How about something new, original, an not a rerun of a rerun. And yes those old gems had a lot going for them.

Remember "Rogue". Just ascii text. And Many a happy hour playing it, too.

when vista comes out (if it ever does) will wine have combatability? There are beta versions of vista floating about the web that could be used to delelop wine capability, of course there is the legal issues.

If Civilization 4 would be ported to Linux, I wouldn't even think about logging back into Windows.

But still, How about the Ubisoft games? The ENTIRE Myst series, or better yet, URU Ages Beyond Myst would rock my world.

Windows? That is a big square section that opens up on my screen.

This is what I want to see ported, too. Apparently Bungie Studios had a Linux version in mind before Microsoft bought them out. I think we're more likely to see a Cedega-fueled Halo before a port, unfortunately

But Halo is definitely #1 on my wishlist.


alert, diablo, free, game, games, linux, native, starcraft, supertux, unreal
