i dont know how many of you guys are running linux, but anyone know if they are planning a port to linux? I know that there is a UT port...is there a Quake3?

The question I would be asking is if there is an Elite Force port, or if they have mentioned anything about a SOFII port.

The Quake3 port was developed by iD themselves. Some Raven titles that went to linux were Heretic II and Soldier of Forune. Both were ported by <a href="http://www.lokigames.com/">Loki</a>.

Let's hope Jedi Knight II goes Linux! :)

They wouldn't put it on console unless it really, really sucked.

They definatly wont put it on a console as the fan base are mainly with the PC. Consoles couldnt handle what RAVEN are on about anyway.

Quake3 had a linux and Mac version and it seems to me, they came out pretty close to the release of the PC version. I think EF appeared on Mac, but I'm not sure about linux. I also think there is a linux dedicated server version for EF, but that's not what you originally asked about. I suppose if the market is there and they can do it easily, I'm sure they wouldn't want to turn away hordes of paying customer? How many people _really_ use linux? Are there any reliable figures anyone can dig up?

It may be quite difficult to find any figures
