Stupid, well maybe they're dumber than your omnipotent intelligence regarding computers, but they have money to pay for games and are willing to spend it.

Without Cedega, how many commerical games (and I mean commercial in their entirety including levels, artwork, maps, etc are released for the Linux platform?)

I can only think of Quake 1 2 3 and soon to be 4, Doom 3 and RtCW and the few games that LOKI ported for companies.

Ask yourself why did Loki Games go out of business if there is such a large Linux Gamer market?

I can't think of any other MAJOR (I don't mean nethack or battle for wesnoth) commercial games released, at any time, for linux.

you should ALL BE SUPPORTING CEDEGA if you want games to come to linux. CEDEGA guarantees the game makers that their copy protection scheme will not be violated and that the game players are legitimate.

The more players of LEGITIMATE STORE BOUGHT games on Linux there are, the more game studios will want to port their code to linux. No one in the commercial game industry wants to give away their work when it costs millions to make and distribute each game. They need to recoup their costs and turn a profit.
