Dungeons of Dredmor - Interview, Patch 1.0.10, Teaser, Project Odin

Gaming on Linux has an interview with Nicholas Vining Daniel Jacobsen from Gaslamp Games. The questions deal mostly with gaming on the Linux platform. Here's a quote on how to make the Linux succeed in terms of money:

It boils down to money. If you want Linux on the desktop to succeed, the Linux community has to accept that commercial, closed-source software, of the sort usually sold for money, is a necessary part of that ecosystem. One of the reasons why Linux in the server market has been so successful is because it’s possible to make a great deal of money off of Linux servers and open source software in the server market. That money then gets injected into the open source development sphere, and everybody wins. If you want a better Linux desktop experience, and a better open-source Linux desktop experience, make it easier for us to make money off of it. If we’re making money, we’re willing to help get things fixed and make life better, and we can use open source software to do so. Everybody wins.
