google "China hacks US linux"

Chinese Government apparently hacked into the US Pentagon with Linux back in 2007.

I ROFL so hard.
Proves Linux is more powerful than the US Government.

Linux people just do not understand. The Army is not looking for independent thinking individuals who are technically advanced.
They are looking for people who follow the herd and use a convicted monopolist's operating system. That's all, they just want sheep.

Wow, you just don't get it.

Last time for everyone:

They don't have enough money to make the game for Linux, period.



They almost don't have enough money for a Windows client. From what I hear the project is in danger of being cancelled completely (this is mostly the result of negative press labelling the game as propaganda trying to turn America's youth into mindless killing machines).

None the less, both Linux and Mac supporting Linux and Mac (At least the Mac) versions would be a wise investment.

P.S. - [MIA]KCToker, You're a troll.

Being in the Army and an avid AA player I know the pain you are all discussing, I ran AA in Linux (Slackware) until 2.5. I have a single Windows based computer at home, which gets most of my $$ I put into computers as everything else I do besides gaming I manage on either my EEE PC 1000, or my older desktop that I had 2.5 on, like someone else said, they had someone porting AA over to Linux for free on his own time. Not a lot of users in here I would wager could do such a task, in a timely manner to keep up with the changes. I said my piece about this before to my Chain of Command and some other folks involved with AA. It's not happening (porting 3.0 over to Linux) sadly, so I am also shamed with about $2000 of computer to solely run Windows XP Pro to play AA... (the other computer I have that is Windows based is for work and issued to me from the Army... not that I would be using it for discussion in here right now or anything)

Anyway AA2 is better than any shooter natively available on Linux. Am I right? So it is possible to maintain private AA2 servers by major Linux communities/distros.

Why not to spend your $2000 to hire a programmer rather than buy Windows and the computer?
