.... It would be interesting to see Linux finally pick up gaming and improve it...

You don't know what you're talking about, do you? It's on the developers to move it over to linux. They have the tools they need.

I know that the developers have to make the transition but are they willing to spend the extra time to develop for Linux when they would need to use something else than DirectX and the game on Linux will only sell a fraction of what the game sold on another platform. It would be interesting to see a big time developer, not all these indie developers, to make a game playable on Linux and make the endeavor actually beneficial.

Maybe in the distant future.

It's more likely apple will take over and pc gaming will die.

With the right people backing it and good funding, then yea... Linux could be king.

From the sound of things lately, it seems like I'll be sticking to Windows 7 for a long long time. Then switching to Linux if it becomes a good/only option. I'd stop pc gaming entirely if Apple took over.

I'm all right with it. As long as it works correctly, I'd like to stop needing Windows to game.

LMAO. No. Linux us HORRIBLE. Linux has problems running things that are supported for it let alone anything else.

If Valve has it's way Linux will be. But also how could Gaben have predicted the failure of windows 8? Wasn't the linux steambox announced way before windows 8?

It's not the future until the majority of games are supported on it. That's just not going to happen. I bet my life on it.
