I have to say, I am extremely excited to get my hands on this. Are you? We don't have many high quality real time strategy games, but we have a lot of turn based strategy games, so it's one of the reasons I'm so excited.

I never had a chance to play these series of games, so having it on Linux makes it even sweeter. Article taken from

I'm very excited about this. I played the first Cossacks and I loved it. I'm hyped that it's coming. But it's fantastic that it will be a Linux release.
