    Default Native Linux Client?

    Any chance of this EVER? I doubt it myself because all the work involved isn't exactly cost effective but I've been begging blizzard for a native linux client for over 3 years and they never even answered any questions I had for them. If the developers even put this into their "looking into it" list, they would win my heart for life.

    Highly doubt it but you can try running Rift in WINE.

    IF you buy a really nice computer with a nice graphics card this game will Run under wine with Ultra Settings without fullscreen FX [It's the stupid bloom option]. I've been playing in beta with a AMD P2 x6 3.2 and a nvidia 570 on Ultra with no problems. Did some tweaks here and there and suffer 10ish fps but I'll take that 10fps to skip out on Windows anyday!

    Default Definitely should have a linux port

    I think that this would be awesome. Also, a smart move. Study have showed that the average linux user have a better income than the average windows user, they more respectful of license and... they're not a lot of game native to linux so... I guess a hell lot of linux user would just buy and subscribe to the game. So, please Trion, makes a native linux version.
