Linux and Mac's are both Unix based systems, so if one is ported cant it some how work for both.
In the end, Mr. State noted, "what we would ultimately like to see is the vast majority of PC titles being launched as Windows/Mac or, better yet, Windows/Linux/Mac hybrids. We believe that users should be able to buy their games in whatever store they want, and play them on whatever platform they want."
I know that macs use their own proprietary libraries but it doesn't seems like a shot in the dark to port windows games for both macs and linux based systems since their all working off of x86 systems. I know linux desktops uses are few are far between and have a even less precentage than macs desktop users but Linux is really up and coming. Im wondering, with all the many distros, do you think it would harder for cider to be configured for linux. Im assuming not because Wine and Cedaga work on all of the distros (this is an assumption). I just wonder if this new technology is really trying to bridge a gap or make a new gaping hole. When i get my Macbook i hope to run Mac os, Windows xp and Fedora on the same system. It would be great if i could play a certain game regardless of which partitions i was using. Wouldn't it?
