There's no real "link" to this info. All I have is my e-mails back and forth to a Lucasarts producer. He said:
“making a separate manager app and rewriting the server code for linux is 2 very different things...but if he knows someone that does that stuff, always interested to hear about people”
To which I replied and gave him a name of someone I know who did the linux code for Call of Duty, America's Army, Unreal Tourny, etc.
I also got this response:
"I really am all for this, Stryker, and I’ll do whatever I can to help. Please understand that it’s just very doubtful. "
This was all way back on November 2nd.
