I am the owner of GamingOnLinux. After discovering Linux back in the days of Mandrake in 2003, I constantly came back to check on the progress of Linux until Ubuntu appeared on the scene and it helped me to really love it. You can reach me easily by emailing GamingOnLinux directly.

Just to copy paste from another thread:
Not surprised - Croteam did basically say the only reason they did not want to release a Linux version was because of the lack of Steam. Someone should check up on the Red Orchestra guys and see if they were serious about that as well.

Any chance to wrestle more information out of them?

Would be interesting to know if this is strictly a Steam deal or not, and what the plans are for SS2 and the HD remakes.

SS series has been good fun so seeing nr 3 on linux would be really cool :)

Plus if they release their redone versions of The First and Secound Encounter on Linux then maybe they could be played natively without having to fall though the floor all of the god damn time? :rolleyes:

I have emailed them to find out if it will be a steam only release for Linux, awaiting reply.

A bit more information has come out:

It makes me wonder if we might still see a Rage Linux release - after all, that game is tied down to Steamworks and is OpenGL already. I can see Valve trying to do some arm twisting to make it happen - especially since Carmark is not against a Linux port in theory.
