Since Valve can't keep Civ 5 working with Steam Workshop on PC, I'm not in favor of them devoting resources to anything else until they've fixed the stuff they've already sold us.

I have every version from CIV II to CIV V ( and CTP, Alpha Centauri etc ) because I like this sort of game. But having moved to Linux, I don't play them any more ( Wine is a last resort rather than first port of call for me).

I would buy CIV V expansions and future franchise products because I enjoy these sorts of games; but only if they have native Linux ports. There are plenty of other good games that have ported or will port to Linux, so I won't be short of alternatives.

Personally, I think Linux is probably comparable or a bigger games platform than MacOSX, because the more tech-oriented people that often use Linux are proportionately more likely to be gamers than the more creative-oriented Mac users. I guess the steam figures buying and playing figures will be useful in determining that.

i think they are working on a port to linux because their steambox runs also on linux. so it is only a matter of time till civ5 is released for linux natively.

Ports of a game to a diffrent OS are done by the Developer/Publisher, not Steam/Valve.

I suggest making a petition in their forums where they will see it.

Post a link when you do, so I can sign it.
