* id won't port new engine to Linux

Bad news for the linux crowd - id Software's new engine will not be getting a linux port.

Sorry guys, but you are less than .5% of the possible gaming market, MUCH less once someone includes consoles. And honestly, the responses on that thread remind me of why so many people have not adopted Linux for the desktop - they have to wade through forums with people like you just to get the damn OS (of whatever distribution) running, and then come in again for any programs they want to use.
