Games When I decided to take on this article I thought it would be easy. Grab a few quotes from some developers, re-hash WINE support, check out the latest version of Battle for Wesnoth... Simple stuff.

Interesting interview with the producers of the Amnesia game on how Linux and Mac ports save a game studio.

The Desura client for Linux might go open sources

Dont know if Android counts.The quality of games is improving fast (example http://www.madfingergames.com/)and some quad core mobile gpu's is said to reach PS3 quality next year.

The hardware is also relatively cheap (Tegra's 3 going for between $15-$25 apparantly and Omap 4 between $12-$14.)

Android's 3D graphics library is OpenGL ES 2.0 based so this could only benefit Linux ports?
