Why no linux version?
The game comes bundled with dosbox on windows, there's a linux version of dosbox and thus I ask, why no linux version? It's clearly not that complicated to get running and I fail to see how there could be any legal issues since dosbox uses the same license regardless of platform. (same goes for the rest of the classic doom games)

Oh for christ's sake, You can not copy over a couple of fricking files from your windows partition to your dosbox folder?

If you can not perform such a simple task, why in gods name are you using Linux?
cp path/to/steam/in/windows /home/YOURNAME/.dosbox/Drive_C

Or use your filemanager.

There is a certain satisfaction to getting things to run under Dosbox, or WINE... If you do not like this sort of satisfaction, I suggest you go back to windows or buy a Macintosh to help confux your gameing life .

Oh but who says I even HAVE a windows partition?
Besides, I like to have my in-game time registered so I can keep track of where my time goes.

As for liking the satisfaction of getting ♥♥♥♥ running, of course I do. Why else would I be running nothing but linux and only running Arch and LFS (I might install gentoo some day but it's unlikely, I get all I want from LFS and arch already)

Quite an astute observation, except linux is not apple.

/This game was made in the mid 90's. What do you expect

seeing that the game was 'ported' by providing a bundled dosbox (which, fyi, runs on linux) I expect there to be a linux version as the 'porting' wouldn't take any more effort.
