Okay, don't tell anyone you heard it from me, but Loki's porting Descent 3 to Linux. Just thought I'd let you know about it because you're my favorite Slashdot reader.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own. To receive this Complete Guide absolutely free.
Did I travel back in time or something? There's been a linux version of the full Quake3 since shortly after the windows version came out. I was playing it, like, two days ago. If you have the windows version, look around whatever mirror site you usually use for the quake3 directory.
There should be a 1.16 point release for linux. Install it, and the baseq3 directory from your q3a cd somewhere in your linux fs. It works quite well.
There's also a boxed release, sold in very few shops, because most distributors are too timid to take a risk on an unknown OS. (Games Distributor: 'Linux? What the hell is that? Some kind of web-browser? Cabrillo To Adif Software. Nah.Stick with what we know, I say.' I think this is great, I have it on windows now and have been wanting to play it across a network with my brothers, so I'll just have to give them my windows version and buy the Linux version so we can all play together. The more games that Loki ports and sells, the more likely many other vendors will do the same.
I can't wait to see the day when I can walk into CompUSA or Best Buy and see just as many programs on the shelf for linux as there are for windows. Even if it's just games, I'll settle for that. Actually, if you want the best ROI, you develop the game simultaneously for as many platforms as it'll run on and have more than three users.
Simultaneous development is THE WAY to go, as it adds very little cost above the simple act of writing the game, and can help to catch bugs and things like that. Unfortunately, most game makers haven't caught on yet. It's rare enough to find games that are simultaneous for PC and Mac, and ones that are simultaneously released for PC and Linux (and maybe the Mac too) are even more rare. 'And generally, are more intellectual games, but that may just be a coincidence.' Well - carefully avoiding the possible backpatting of linux intellect - i'd say Quake and Descent 3 (aka Quakers of the Sky) aren't particularly intellectual.
But then there's the obvious philosophical wank of 'Is skill in Quake an intellectual thing anyway. It requires something of a mind and would an efficient killer - no matter how deplorable - use an intellect to be better?'
