QuoteThe drawback of D3D11 is that it is not universal. It only works on machines running the requisite operating system, and on hardware capable of understanding the instructions it sends. According to to the Valve Hardware Survey, the penetration of D3D11 capable machines is increasing. But crucially, machines incapable of any D3D rendering are also a growing market: Linux distributions and Mac OSX.So looks like we will have a seriously awesome shooter on Linux this year!
Enter Open Graphics Library (OpenGL). OpenGL works on a wider array of operating systems than D3D, including Linux and Mac. As gaming communities on these operating systems grow, it is becoming more financially viable to produce games that run on them.

toorwould it be safe to pay it on steam? I mean, are we sure it will be available on steam linux?I myself would only buy a title once it is actualy available for Linux to ensure that it counts as a sale for Linux as well as to be on the safe side.
