First, thanks for this mailing list, and everything you've done.  Can
you or someone else answer or elaborate another rumor that has been
floating around?

With there being no Linux version in the box, that doesn't mean there
will be a full downloadable version of the Linux client out there,
right.  We'll still need to buy the Winblows version of the UT3, and
then just download some installer scripts and binaries from you once
they are ready, right?

With that being said, will there be any kind of stat-tracking done on
the downloaded version of the Linux client?  I would really like to see
the numbers of the Linux users, so that maybe future game developers
will see that there is a market out there, and give the help that is
needed.  From the sound of it, the reason being for this lack-of-support
this time around, was shear lack of resources...and a HUGE company
expecting one person to do the job of many.

Just my thoughts about this all, and I'm very curious of the future of
the Linux and Epic.  Looking forward to any kind of an update you can
give for a Linux demo, and again really appreciate all the work!
