# When will a Linux version be available?This depends in part on the porting of Kobold Quest. As soon as somebody ports this and releases it with a suitably permissive license, we'll then try to do the same with Dwarf Fortress as we are able. Kobold Quest and Dwarf Fortress are based on the same engine. The relevant forum thread is here. I currently have a tentative Linux port of Kobold Quest, but do not yet have proper license information for the code.
Apparently it works flawlessly under Wine. Not the same, I know...
My name is Arend StÃ¼hrmann, also known as CCP Whisper, and I am the producer in charge of the project bringing EVE Online to the Mac and Linux operating systems. As you may know, we have been working in partnership with Transgaming Technologies, utilizing their Cider engine to allow EVE Online to run on the Mac OS and their Cedega engine to enable operation under Linux. This project went live in late 2007 and in that time we have seen the same slow, steady growth in the numbers of users of the Mac client that has characterized the growth of EVE Online throughout its history. However we have not seen a similar growth in the numbers using our Linux client.It is for this reason that I am sorry to have to announce that from the 10th of March onwards CCP will no longer be officially supporting the Linux operating system. The low amount of users of the Linux client did not justify the degree of additional complexity having three operating systems imposes on our development and release schedules. ***Should you wish to continue playing EVE Online under Linux there are several options available. Some of these are free and some require purchase of software. A selection of these is at the bottom of this e-mail along with basic instructions on how to use EVE Online through them. If you wish to stop playing EVE Online and want to request a refund of unused game time, please contact our billing department by filing a petition in the billing category. They will assist you in obtaining a refund for the remaining game time and closing your account.
It's almost like Wine is a weird sub-species of cloud computing...
