I'm going to say probably not. Keep in mind, writing a program for Linux is not very practical-the market penetration is very low for end-users, and the users that you COULD market to are as like(or more) to pirate it as buy.

Currently this is true and about 6 months ago I would have said don't ever bother. But with Valve now supporting Linux with steam and all their games there is the possibility that things might change in the future. It's a wait and see I think.

I was unaware of this. This does present a game changer... potentially. There's still not much in the way of market penetration for Linux gamers, but this could be a turn-around.
But you are correct... It's a wait-and-see situation for a while I think.

This has been discussed many times. The last time he responded to this he was not interested in adding Linux support. Even though it's been brought up many times.
