All good games should be ported to Linux. NWN is.

http://nwn.bioware.com/downloads/linuxclient.html

Just released today.

Has anyone tried it out yet?

nerds like it because they can change it. it's open source, so people flock to it because it can be made to do some really funky shiznat to your computer. plus you have more access to some of the stuff in your computer.

it's mostly more flexible than windows is. that's why they like it.

Hurray!! Hrmph, I should really upgrade to Linux one of these days...and get myself a PC....and money...and...bah I should do way too much.

ANyway, it's good that there's finally a client for linux, but what can it do? I mean, I suppose that everything should be possible on Linux as well, but what isn't possible?? And....will SoU be ported as well??(that's the main question icon_smile.gif)

Oh, and Linux isn't the first, nor th eonly open source, Unix(or UNIX, whatever) exists as well, that's the predecessor of Linux...icon_smile.gif

Yup, this is good indeed. I was already able to use the beta version of long ago. Maybe they'll have worked out some of the bug now that it's official.
Oh, and FYI: In the beta version, this also ran perfectly on FreeBSD and OpenBSD. Hope they didn't mess that up. icon_cool.gif

Heh, UNIX isn't true Open Source. Just ask The SCO Caldera Group and IBM. icon_wink.gif It's also not the true predecessor of Linux. Minix is. Either way, UNIX blows. Stick with the good stuff, Linux, xBSD, or BeOS.
