Doom 3 BFG Linux
This is for the dev's.
When is the linux version going to be released?

I bought the BFG edition to show support for Valve and id software.
I own original copies of Doom, Doom 2, and Doom 3 and the latter running natively on Debian. id software has always been Linux/Unix friendly with Quake, Quake 2, Quake 3 Arena, Doom 3, Quake 4, and Quake Live all able to run natively. So with that in mind a Steam Port for the BFG edition should not be that far of a leap. It may even boost sales for Rage as well by porting to Linux/Unix.

Last I heard the programmer who ported ID's previous games to Linux is no longer with them so it doesn't look like a port is forthcoming for the BFG Edition.

You heard incorrecly. John Carmack made sure all the games written would run in Linux from the get go and used a Linux box to code the engines.

http://ttimo.typepad.com/blog/2012/01/onwards-.html Here's a link to the programmer in question's blog post bidding farewell. Any future linux ports of ID Software games will be community projects based on released source code. https://twitter.com/idBrianHarris/status/259700062303698945

Yes it was sad that TTimo left id software, but like I said they are a linux friendly software company. Here are some very inspirational arricles...
