From a Slashot Article, Gaming On Linux looks at Linux sales of some popular indie games, and ponders whether or not Linux will be the #2 gaming platform any time soon.
Doesn't look like Linux is poised to be a gaming behemoth any time soon, but at the same time, nearly every indie developer they talked to was behind supporting Linux. David Rosen, of Wolfire sums up the best reason to support Linux. One percent of their sales are for Linux, which is teeny tiny. On the other hand, the cost of porting their game Overgrowth to Linux was far less than the revenue they've earned from that 1% of sales, so it's profit that they would otherwise not have. Nice.
With SteamOS coming soon, and tomorrows mainstream developers supportive of Linux, I think the future is bright for Linux as at least the #2 gaming platform of choice.
I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.
