Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Fundamentally nothing has changed with our policy regarding
Linux games. Trying to shoehorn the ZeniMax acquisition into this
is pointless, as they are true to their word of focusing on the
business and letting the studio focus on the games.

which is in line with the company's previous releases. Nothing new
there, releasing Linux versions has always been a matter of higher
code quality, good software architecture, and technical interest
for the platform."
