Andreas, You have been nothing bet the best to us so for ;).  It is 
unfortunate that there wont be a Linux server out on retail, It will 
halt me and my community (200+) from buying the game until there is. I 
was planning on putting 5 or 6 servers up for this on retail, but I 
guess we will have to wait until after retail. We wont play, at least 
put any time into playing, unless its on our servers. We know we get the 
best playing experience because we are the admins ;)

I have also had numerous customers asking if we will carry bf2 on 
release, and now must send at least 25% of my paying customers to 
someone who WILL have servers on release. This is not just bad for me as 
a gamer, it will severely impact my business.  How many other GSP's will 
have lost customers within the months following the release of BF2, and 
how many will that piss off to the point of not supporting it after it 
gets released.  I know after hearing this news, I will be down over 
$1200 USD a month, that doesnt make me happy.
