"I play Starcraft 2 on Linux and apparently Im not the
only one. At the end of last month I wrote a brief guide for
getting Starcraft 2 working under Linux using Wine. In the last ten
days that guide has gotten nearly nine thousand views and currently
has ninety comments.
"Now Ive talked before about why I think there is a market for
creating games for Linux and I think my above statistics only
reinforce this idea. Dont believe me? Think about it this way -
lets assume half of the people (4,500) who have checked out my
guide have purchased the game and would prefer to play it on Linux.
The game currently retails for 60$ USD."
