Linux At LFL
Now that LucasFilms has used Linux INSIDE their organization (for Attack o' the clones) maybe we'll see some of their older stuff packaged for Linux?
BattleHawks 1942, Battle of Britain, Xwing/Tie Fighter, XWing VERSUS Tie Fighter, all of these would easily get another $20-$40 from me, if I could only play them natively in Linux. I thought they were big on 'repeat plays'; why not restore these onto the Linux platform and recoup some of the money invested?
Under Windows, I couldn't care less; I'd share anything I got, with the primary complaint that the titles were just too high. But under Linux, the fact they exist at all is precious; I don't make copies for anyone. I show friends the games and entice them to enjoy them as much as I do. My hope is that this will get more copies sold, and therefore, more titles available.
The Linux market compared to TheOwned is small. Many Linux boxes stay on the shelf in a server-bunker. But I'm on Linux; so are my kids and even my 72yo mom. Redhat Linux with Gnome2 and apt is such a sweet environment, who would give up the freedom for a few more titles?

Well, there WAS a page on it that was really detailed, but I don't have the link. It's not hard to find; try google.com and search for "anti-micrsoft". If it eludes you, let me know.
