    Re: DOTA2 will be on Linux soon!

    I have it on Windows Steam, and am waiting to see it in my Linux library, especially since I boot into Windows (strictly for gaming) about once a week; even Windows 7 irritates me no end whenever I boot into it. OK for games, but only because it runs things that Wine doesn't. Native Linux games run faster on my machine.

    I drink my Ubuntu black, no sugar.

    I have it as a gift from someone but haven't yet accepted it. I will once it is released for Linux as I want to be on the safe side with regard to it counting as a "sale" for Linux.

    What do you want to say by that? Just accept your gift and play it when the beta is released.

    Oh yeah, the same to me. But unfortunately I get "missing excutables" error after downloading the game.
    EDIT: The bin-folder is empty. Seems not to be playable yet.

    This has happened to me with Dwarfs!? and with the Kickstarted War for the Overworld (a remake|homage of Dungeon Keeper 2), which I have a Steam key for, also Akeniero: Demon Hunters, which does run. Dwarfs!? eventually installed and runs just fine, but War for the Overworld, which has a Bedrock Beta Windows release, is still working on the promised Linux release. It appears to install, but no executable can be found. Once the Linux version is released, it'll install, I have no doubt.

    The Steam servers are also streaming DOTA 2 to millions of Windows machines, as it is newly out of beta release. It's kind of like day 1 of a new Ubuntu release; you don't want to try upgrading that day...

    Dota 2 Testing is running now on my mashine. But I got some trouble with graphic glitches. It's already reported on github so it's a known error they're working on.
