    There going to follow. and there going to compete, not only that, with nvidias latest updates supporting multiple features, even new randr compositing features, nvidia is boosting there developement

    Along with that, phoronix unveiled news about a new Graphical gaming engine bringing "Tessellation" to linux. the main feature/backend of DirectX 11, and native DX11

    And ontop of even that, wayland and new X Managers are due boasting impressive features. and with DR2 and Proper Piping been founded its a bright future

    My Point is. linux isnt just a terminal anymore, its graphical and breakthroughs are been made which companys are noticing. those breakthroughs allow easy game ports. good graphics, and future gaming developement so companys will eventually grab that and use it for profit margins
    Agree, this can only mean more incentive for better drivers and multimedia capabilities available on Linux. Games is the only reason I have a dual boot, and if enjoyable quality games becomes native on Linux there wouldn't be a reason to keep windows partition anymore.

    Even for those not wanting anything to do with this, there will be positive spin offs in the long run. Maybe now we could perhaps get a driver (open source or proprietary) that actually supports suspend and waking the screen properly every time from standby mode on a laptop

    Was going to post this but then I realized that all the news is just that EA will be at the Ubuntu Developer Summit and nothing else. Meh.

    That would be great but that also means that EA must have been working on something for Linux this whole time. What's more, will people who own the game for Windows have to buy it again for Linux?

    This isn't the first time EA has had anything to do with Linux. Owners of the Windows version of Medal of Honor Allied Assault could download an installer for the Linux platform too, although I was too lazy at the time to figure out how to make it work. But the option was there freely for Windows customers, nonetheless, and I'm sure it would work just the same if EA's published titles were released on Steam.
