Last we heard, Ryan was mostly finished with the port and was just cleaning
up while some behind-the-scenes legal battles were talking place over
(networking code?).  Anyway, I was also thinking that sense UT3 has become
available on Steam there may be a Steam UT3 Linux in the works...  I believe
Steam is also being ported, so it'd be interesting if they planned to
release both around the same time to attract more attention to Steam.  (As
releasing it with UT3, TF2, AudioSurf, and whatever else Source engine based
games could be available...)  <-- Major happy hopeful thought, do not take
that as what will happen.  I just remember a while back hearing that Steam
was being ported..  So who knows... just hope the devs still feel motivated
to get it out asap.  (Also if there will be UT3 Linux beta testing...
