Some one explained to me once that if you use a Linux distro that Linux was a black box because you couldn't mess with it only mess with the distro that was built on top of it.

Well actually you can change the Kernel the environment and any little piece of the distro you want really. You even have the option of changing the kernels source code. or installing a Kernel from another Distro.

Yea research shows that Linux people have the cheapest os's available yet they donate more than windows users. I wish the pay what you want pricing was adopted for games world wide. world of goo for 1.33$ was the best purchase i ever made.

Precisely! couldn't have said it better myself... the NV OpenGL drivers for linux out perform windows any day. This can be proven by the emulator EpsxE and it's performance under Linux versus Windows.

Then again that may because Pete built the OGL plugin in Linux... Regardless, there just doesn't seem to be enough of a market to convince the publishers to pay extra to have it ported there, and not enough market for the Devs to create it to run on Linux to begin with... So we are stuck with freeware until a larger portion of the community makes the conversion.

There are other issues with development of games for Linux as well though, I suppose. Like the opensource platform requiring any game using the Open source libraries include the source code. A lot of developers don't want people knowing how their game runs, because that would allow people to crack it much easier.
