Though, that does beg the question what are they using to code with in OSX and iOS, since those are based on FreeBSD (UNIX) kernel? Duggan and Valyar, I was going to test with Wine here soon, but I had not heard of Mono. I will for it too. The name alludes me at the moment, but there is also a paid version of Wine also that might be able to handle RW and HL a little better. Any way All, thanks for your input. LWD, I reiterate that I will pay for another license for a native Linux port of RW and HL.

A port to linux would probably cost at least 1 man year of labor (probably more), in the silicon valley area thats at least $200k. There are probably not enough Linux using gamers out there to make anywhere close to a profit. Just use it in a VM.
