I can't lie I have been waiting for this for 20 years, I am pretty excited, I hope more major companies start to take notice of this! --- "The two most common elements in the universe are Hydrogen and stupidity." Harlan Ellison

It's not even the first major game to land on a Linux based stack this year. --- Some roads you shouldn't go down because maps used to say there'd be dragons there. Now they don't, but that don't mean the dragons aren't there.

I'd say X3:TC:AP is the largest game on Linux so far. I haven't given it a try to see if it runs better on Linux, the install is larger than my home drive at the moment. And I am out of hard drive bays, and steam Linux can't recognize portable drives when you try to add another library. --- He who stumbles around in darkness with a stick is blind.

Witcher 2, Valve games, and ID software games were already out before Civ 5.
Witcher 2 apparently isn't working well though. It's using a wrapper, and gets bad performance.
Folks are saying the Civ5 port is just equivalent to the Windows version running in DX9. --- Super Mario Kart is the single best Mario Kart ever!
