Issue is that the games need to support OpenGL as implementing D3D libraries into Linux just is not going to happen especially Dx10 and Dx11.

If the game can be written or ported to support OpenGL this is a open and shut case.

In the distant future we'll be talking about the time when we had to install this "Windows" operating system just to play games.

I tell you, in 5 to 10 years, Linux is going to be the next BIG thing...

We'll have sent the personal computer to the dustbin of history before that ever happens.

Portal 2 is available on Mac IIRC, so it shouldn't be rocket science to offer some of their other titles on ubuntu (HL2, CS, etc). I'm not sure about games from other developers though.

lol Linux is awesome but will take decades to even dent Windows. Not enough people know about it and Linux is barely supported for most hardware let alone games.
