makes sense TBH, i don't see valve working on support for all those distro's out.
Baaww, they almost had me switching to Linux..
Well, I'm gonna keep using windows now
Honestly.. its a waste of time... most of the "gamers" on linux are allready using wine to play.
As much as I hate to admit it, this is another example of a company not supporting Linux because most Linux users are a bunch of freeloaders. I don't think the number of distros is really a problem. Most distros (at least popular ones) are Ubuntu based. This article makes a lot of good points. I don't blame them, though i personally would've like to see it.
FFFFFFfffffffffffffffffffuck you gabe
thing is, debian based distro's are by no means the core market of linux users. the only people who really use them are just people looking for an alternative to windows or just want to feel edgy. there is a larger share of people using distro's like fedora, arch, opensuse, mandriva e.t.c
Yes, that's true. But I guess I was just making the assumption that the most Linux users who game are those "edgy" people. Most PC gamers are Windows users and I just think it stands to reason that most of these people who are also Linux users use Debian based distros (thanks for the correction). Sorry if I'm not getting my point across. I get it in my head, its just hard to explain.
How much time and resource would you expend for 1% of the market?
It'd be stupid for them to do otherwise.
:yaysteam: Mac OSX is enough and there's Wine..
Good thing I reinstalled Windows XP
Yay for dual booting then.
Yeah I understand the market share thing still it makes me sad.
Did you know that nVidia GFX on a Linux system works as well as an early Intel GMA chip?
Do you have a source for your claims or you just trying to pull a fast one? Cause as long as you use the proprietary linux drivers that are available from Nvidia and don't have a really weak GPU, Nvidia GPUs should work better than integrated Intel GPUs.
This is why I'm going to dual run Linux with Windows XP...that and half of my games won't run on Linux.
This image expresses everything that I will ever need and want to say about this:
Programs like PlayOnLinux and Wine Bordeaux already offer great support for Steam games. There is absolutely no real reason to make Source games available for Linux users; it just doesn't seem like something Valve and any other Steam developers can profit from. :/
