"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."
