I see what your trying to do there...

but no, the quake 3 engine is NOT a 'game distribution platform', it is a game engine.

To imply that the handful of games made with the quake3 engine was enough to justify a complete shift in pc gaming to linux is absurd.

Steam IS a major game dstribution platform, its support of linux can entice more than just john carmack to make their engine linux compatible.
