Default Re: OT: Half life 2 porting petition

There is because it registers as a "Windows Sale" not a Linux sale. There are also inherent problems with an infrastructure based on emulation. It can never be as fast, and tweaks/fixes can't be made down the road in the event of a patch. Native is the only way to go if you bother at all. Plus Transgaming is not the most reputable company, in fact I think they are just scheisters leeching off of the wine project and violating terms of the GPL.
