Seriously, Ryan already probably got in trouble for telling us as much
as he did awhile back; you really think that a company whose sole
notable asset is a game engine is NOT going to have an independent
contractor working on fundamental-level code under an NDA? I wish I
lived in that kind of world, where corporations were so open and
reasonable :P

Ryan, in the past, has been a pretty blunt and honest person, and
successfully ported earlier iterations of this very engine; I don't
see why he'd both fail AND from his own free will refuse to say
anything this time around.  Considering there have been absolutely no
releases of any UE3 games for a PC platform other than Windows
(neither OSX nor Linux releases) despite the technology itself
obviously being portable (if you can run it on iOS and the PS3, I mean
seriously now...) there's obviously something else going on here, and
the strongly-made suggestion that it's some middleware that the owner
is unwilling to license to a non-Microsoft PC platform seems to fit
the facts better than any other hypothesis.
