"There are no other reasons for its delay. Unfortunately, given the
lack of progress it seems unlikely the UT3 Linux client will ever be
completed.  - Steve"

That sounds like bullshit right there.  We've seen screenshots, the
server came out, Ryan ported previous Unreal Engine titles, and hell
Ryan even got the chance to complete a port of Prey in the meantime
during all of this.  Furthermore, UT3 runs fine on the PS3 so it's
obviously not just a "oh, it's too tied to Direct3D" story.  GoW,
which is also UE3, was released for OSX and only not released for
Linux because well hey it's a Microsoft game you know they aren't
going to. Something else is going on other than technical difficulties
and Polge is outright lying about it, or has been told lies about it
that he's passing on.

Honestly at this point I can't manage to care much about a UT3 client
coming out, but I'm deathly curious to find out what the backstory is
on all this.
