During presentations and hands-on demos at Crytek's GDC booth, attendees can see for the first time ever full native Linux support in the new CRYENGINE.
I may have to move back on to linux soon once again!
The first right move from Crytek since... ever.
The operating system that powers the majority of devices aside from desktop computers, including the worlds fastest computers.
Linux is not an OS, it's a kernel. Operating systems such as Ubuntu, Fedora, ect as based on Linux while others such as Win7, WinXP are based on thr NT kernel (outdated as hell btw).
Oh boy, it's this argument yet again. Yes I am aware that what most refer to Linux is usually GNU/Linux, it's usually far simpler to just use terms that people use when communicating as it is obvious that is what they mean. Linux is the widespread name for the 'OS'. Hell, even Linus Torvalds still calls it Linux and he wrote the kernel.
That would be the platform that everyone moves to after being disgusted with the mess that Windows became.
First step to taking Windows off PCs everywhere... that day is coming.
soo im gonna assume doing this on OSX is kinda impossible?
its possible...question is...is it worth it?
Actually, BSD (which OSX is based on) is more similar than not to Linux. While not a trivial matter to port it over, it is probably a lot easier to make this happen with a working Linux version than starting from scratch.
*looks at words* these words are bigger than the ones in my coloring book. NNNNNEEEERRRRRRRDDDDDDD!!!!!!! !!!
Both Linux and OSX are unix-based systems. Porting from one to the other is trivial.
Finally! Thanks, Crytec
