Heres what they have to say about it
Today, we announce the creation of Gentoo Games, Inc., a gaming technology company created to deliver innovative Linux-based game technologies to the public. To kick off this new initiative, we are also announcing a full version of the very popular (Linux exclusive) America's Army military combat simulation on a self-booting Gentoo GameCD. Thanks to hosting services provided by Super Computer, Inc., the America's Army GameCD can be downloaded here. This CD includes the full version of the America's Army game and requires an NVIDIA or recent ATI (Radeon 8500 or higher) graphics card. Enjoy!
So does anybody else think this is cool? I just like to see cross-platform development encouraged. Hopefully this will actually do some good, these are the guys that also released a Linux CD w/ UT2k3 demo on it back when that came out. Anything that gets more Linux ports going would be great, its the only reason I reboot to Windows.
Also, an actual funny quote from the slashdot forums.
Are they planning to aggressively port popular games to Linux?
How the hell does one port "aggresively"? Like this?
