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.

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...

Hi,
I talked Bethesda of the problem that Doom 1,2,3 and quake that have official Linux versions since a long time ago aren't available on steam for Linux. An employee answered me and said he has talked about it to his manager, but I'd better contact Steam also. Ps : Quake 4 also Mac support but not on Steam.
If we want a Linux support for those games that already has one (but not on Steam) everybody should write to Bethesda and Steam support. Here is the Bethesda mail : "ESO English Support" <ESO_Help@helpmail.elderscrollsonline.com>

Also if you want to help, enlist in the Petition for ID Software titles on Steam for Linux.

This was the email reply I got back :

"I have passed on your query and I would advise you to also submit a Steam support ticket here:
https://support.steampowered.com/newticket.php so that Steam can see there is a market for it."
Which was a good start.
So I assume that they want us to open a Steam support ticket to get Steam to ask for the game to be made available on Linux.

Open Co-op? Yeah, that mod was cool, it had a few problems but most of them were minor, wish Zenimax let ID enable one of the biggest features in any ID game, the MODDING. That's right Zenimax, do you wanna know why people still play the older ID games? Yes the games themselves were awesome but the mods, from small things like skinpacks to large source ports.
