I still can't get over the lousy game support on BF42. It looked like the
game to take over my HL servers in time... but guess not. Knowing this, I
wouldn't have bought the game in the first place, and seeing
after-release-support on both BF42, BF'nam, and other games delivered by EA,
I'll have a real hard time convincing myself to put my hard earned money in
other games like BF2.
HL2 is pretty good. Seeing client requirements and all the debris flying
about, I never expected this good performance as it is running how.
However much of the rant posted on HARD|OCP is true. Valve goofed a lot not
supplying the SDK to the major admintool creators in advance. 
The CS:Source community is now begging for decent admintooling since the
RCON use is rather limited. Guess there's shit all about the gameworld.
Still, Once you got steam running well, it's quite easy maintaining. Atleast
the code trees are the same, so your linux box will stay about nicely after
an update
Also Valve's history of supporting the first Half-Live looks promising...
Though they could and should have done better in reparing the release of the
Source engine.
COD is said to run well, but haven't tried it myself. my experiences with UT
(classic, 2k3 and 2k4) were not much of a happy face to me. Not stable
enough, and though a nice webinterface, it was a bit to picky when installed
on Linux for my use. (it didn't deal well with my SMP kernels)

I keep checking my inbox for the *Linux patch*....  =(
I am a Clan leader, advid BF42 game player, and server host (Linux of
(I own 3 copies of 42, 1 copy of RTR and 1 copy of SW)
I experimented with vietnam... was not impressed 
My desire to purchase BF2 is seriously dropping every day....
Have any of you tried some of the other games like Joint operations, Black
hawk down, Halo2, Half life2, etc.
Whats it like to host them?  Are they hogs.. do they have Linux servers? and
what about RemoteManagers....
Bummer!  I REALLY like 42... 
but the map glitches that have NEVER been fixed (except by server side mods
- and ppl wont find you unless they deslect *pure*) and the other items that
have already been aired.... and now this whole fiasco..... 
I really think its time to find a new game/company.
