if steamos / linux on steam is successful would we get origin for linux?

i think if the money was there, ea would definitely do it.

especially since they are the first ones to release a game with mantle - battlefield 4. im not a graphics programmer, but mantle seems like a good api choice for a linux based operating system.

origin could run in the application layer of steamos, or ubuntu or whatever.

your thoughts?

@MonsieurX: eh. not a fan of launching battlefield through a browser.

i know its not great, but it exists and its windows only. should make a pengiun version.

let's wait for linux to break 4000 users first.

@KarateeeChop: don't know what happened to the text of my post there. just disappeared.

yeah, linux is small. ~1-2% desktop users or something.

but steam machines are coming, maybe that will change things?

@CrownKingArthur: as a dev i do not see the need to cater to an abandoned os especially when you're already doing so well on Microsoft Windows, the best OS ever made.

Nah it's pretty good, but Steam has kind of monopolized DD for PC gaming so people are kind of afraid to use anything else.
