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!

Civ V is far, far from the first.

Oh, I haven't noticed them then... but I am still pretty stoked!

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.

Witcher 2, Valve games, and ID software games were already out before Civ 5.

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.

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.
