Please Release Native Linux Clients

This petition had 5,870 supporters

Dear Blizzard,

For almost a decade now, the Linux gaming community have been requesting and requesting and requesting for you to show some love towards us.  Sadly you have constantly ignored our requests.

Although it is understood why you would want to ignore Linux 10 years ago, it does not make sense today.  The Linux desktop operating system has advanced so far over the years to where even the AMD/ATI graphic drivers have become quite good.

Many times in your forums, your moderators will state that Blizzard will support Linux when the demand is there but you never done any survey's to verify if the demand is present or not.

Your anti-cheat system has also proven to you on more than one occassion that it will sometimes flag a Linux gamer using WINE to play your game as using a cheat/bot.  November 2012 was the latest incident where Blizzard had to admit players were falsely identified as cheaters.  This would not happen if you released a native linux client for your games.

Valve came to Linux and have never regretted it so come on Blizzard, show that you do care and bring your games to the fast growing Linux desktop.

Thank you.
