"Are you waiting for your favorite desktop game to come to
Linux? Although there's a handful of big-name games available,
people who are both gaming enthusiasts and Linux fans say parity in
the gaming desktop is still years away."
"'The question here is a chicken and egg one,' says Volker
Wiegand, president of SuSE Linux's U.S. operations. 'Do the games
make Linux mainstream on the desktop, or do the games come when
Linux is mainstream?'"
"Wiegand and others say it's hard to predict when and if Linux
will catch up to Windows on the gaming desktop. 'It's probably far
in the future, farther than I'd want to predict,' says Jeb Bolding,
a senior analyst with Enterprise Management Associates in Colorado
and a Linux user for five years."
