Speaking on their community forum on Steam a developer stated this:
QuoteShadow Warrior Classic Redux includes remastered visuals of the game and it's two expansion packs, native compatibility with modern PCs, new UI, SteamPlay for PC/Mac, and Steam achievements. Future features will include Linux support and Steamworks supported online play.
Sadly that topic has people claiming they are money grabbing for extra features, which just isn't true when the version without all of the above is still free.
They are saying that with Duke3D Megaton Edition as well and that involves the same publisher (Devolver Digital), developer(General Arcade) and IP owner(3D Realms, well they own everything Duke prior to DNF. DNF and post-DNF games belong to Gearbox).
I should also note that Devolver Digital have shown themselves to be one of the the most Linux friendly publishers on the planet.
