Chef wist ons te melden dat er een petitie gestart is om de makers van Operation Flashpoint over te halen om ook Linux te supporten als OFP server platform. Linux heeft veel voordelen en de mensen achter de petitie vragen zich dan ook af of Counter-Strike wel zo populair had kunnen worden zonder Linux servers.Since Codemasters / Bohemia Interactive haven't decided on a dedicated OFP multiplayer server for linux yet we chose to start a petition for it.

The advantages of a linux based dedicated multiplayer server are clearly obvious, also, the implementation of a server on linux is much easier.

Advantages:

- Most todays internet servers run linux (without linux based multiplayer servers there wouldn't be so many successful multiplayer games and communities)

- Linux doesn't eat as much resources as windows does - Linux is much more stable and reliable

- For LAN parties and competitions linux based servers are already being used and it would cause unnecessarily more work to set up an extra windows based server for OFP (that didn't work right for Delta Force either). Je kan hier je virtuele handtekening zetten. Voor iedereen die het Engels niet machtig is is er ook een Duitse versie van het bovenstaande verhaal al 520 mensen hebben getekend, wie is de 521ste?
