Yeah. With the exception of an ancient laptop that still runs XP, all of my computers run Linux, so my gaming options are fairly limited. I'm not much of a gamer anymore, but every now and again a game comes along that makes me feel like I'm missing out if I don't try it.

Same here, although 90% of the time, actually playing the game in question quickly reminds me why I am not much of a gamer anymore, either. And I used to be really passionate about gaming... Not sure if it's the games or if I just burned out / got too old for that shit. I've still got a reasonably competent pc right now. Is it worth it to keep the thing up to date for the 10% of games actually still able to keep my interest for a few hours? I don't know. Apart from gaming, a Pentium 4 would probably still do everything I need from a computer right now.

As for E:D, I really was intrigued by the concept, but read bad things about the effects of their decision to go with a p2p network architecture. And SC? I'm a backer, but by now it has become obvious that my rig isn't going to handle the game if/when it's released.

Ah that makes sense, it has been said they're going to port it to Linux which I'm waiting for as well but who knows when that'll be.
