Gaming with GNU

I’ve often lamented the sad fact that there is not as much attention paid to GNU game development as there should be. It’s hard to be a diehard GNU/Linux user who is also into gaming. Though we look forward to days when more high profile games will be targeted at the GNU/Linux platform, it’s nice to know that there are folks out there trying to ease the transition. This blog from Joystiq discusses the options for the GNU gamer and introduces crossover technologies like Wine and Cedega. I continue to insist that OS developers would do well to focus on these efforts and working hard to make life easy for would-be game developers. In the end, the OS with the most toys will win.
