" With the upcoming port of Soldier of Fortune comes yet another first-person shooter for Linux. What do you think about porting racing and/or flight simulators to Linux in the future?"

"Michael Vance: It's always been Loki's goal to cover a wide range of titles. We've done strategy games, shooters, mech games, simulations, card games, and so on. We expect to continue with that philosophy in the future. While I can't divulge titles, we are looking into the types of games you mention.

" What do you find to be the most challenging part of porting games to Linux?
