So id Software
are moving Quake Live
from a browser game to a native game, the bad news is they won't be supporting Linux (Or Mac).
This is after their most recent game Rage not getting a Linux client at all.
QuoteWill there be Mac/Linux support?Source
We will be unable to support Mac and Linux clients with this transition. While we have reports from our testers that the game works through emulation or virtualization software, we are unable to support native Mac and Linux versions. If you’re using Mac and Linux and have a paid subscription, you will only be able to access the game using emulation or virtualization software.
Is that a joke, Quake
Live is not going to support Linux, sadly not a joke. I wonder what exactly they are doing to make it not be compatible with Linux and even Mac.
With so many companies jumping into bed with Linux id's stance lately is quite shocking. One of our previous champions has fallen folks.
With Team Fortress 2 out on Linux now anyway is it really that big of an issue? I find TF2 to be all around a far better game than QL.
What are your thoughts?
