Seriously, X2 and X3 are ridiculously complicated games.. can you think of a better demographic than Linux users? I just wish it had been native to begin with..
I have to say I never thought about this, but you are absolutely right!

Again, agree with you sir. It's just sad. It is not like the original game will become richer if the developers focus on a windows-only version - why? - because so far the main value was coming from the community, and nothing beats the linux community, as you wrote in an earlier post.

I assume every question about Linux versions should go to LGP.
Well, I already wrote them an email how much I enjoyed their Linux ports of X games and asked for TC too, for which I got a thank you letter... Linux bumpers - lets do the same! ;)

Have to put my own vote in for a Linux release. X3TC is the only reason I boot up Windows these days.
