How to be a great advocate for a niche gaming platform

One thing I feel was neglected by OP, which I find to be very important, is to remember to dance.

QuoteWe still have many more better engines around.
without actually making an eductated argument about why this engine is worse than some others, just detracted from this already awful article.

Personally I don't mind seeing an alternative, nothing bad can come out of it, but I was interested in hearing of new features. Seems like those don't exist?
Also Murmur(Mumble Server) seems to be very destructive to my Ubuntu server, so I will try this out, if I still need VoIP when this releases.

Both TeamSpeak and Mumble run on Linux, what is the benefit of getting another solution?
