    I dunno. It’s one thing to make your own games run on Linux, but it’s quite another to make others do the same.

    “make”? I’m pretty sure nobody is being held at gunpoint being told to make a Linux port. ;p

    I know this is well dickish, but I think you’re confusing the word make with the word force :)

    You need a platform if you’re gonna have someone make their games for it. It’s hard enough to get people to port games to Windows, nevermind Linux.
