    Woot! Blizzard's making WoW for Linux!

    Blizzard's felt the pressure from that petition everyone signed, so now they've agreed to make a Linux client for WoW!

    Oh, it's not on their website yet because they just sent out an email to subscribers of certain levels announcing it ahead of time. I probably shouldn't be telling you all publicly, but oh well, I'm excited! Check it out!

    On July 1, we will be releasing a Linux-based client for playing World of Warcraft. The problems we've seen in the past with using the Windows client on various things like WINE and Cedega and recent pressure from our customers have led us to conclude that a Linux client is something we need to make happen. It will not be open source, but there will be .rpms, .debs, and an installation script made available.

    I don't buy it. It isn't even worded like something Blizzard would write.

    But it would be awesome.

    In other news Microsoft has decided to launch a hostile take over of Apple computers. Bill Gates said that this will allow him to really focus on his retirement since Apple computers just work (and sell).
