    Please read…. http://news.softpedia.com/news/garry-s-mod-and-rust-dev-say-linux-is-a-second-class-citizen-485527.shtml

    Fire away and if possible get a refund……… I can’t get the refund, I got it through a CD-key, don’t remember where. Only played 5 minutes…..That was because the bitch wouldn’t run when I got it.

    We gave you that CD-key.

    And Garry has never been exactly friendly towards Linux. I was stupefied when he actually got back to me and gave us some keys for Rust.

    To comment on his strawman argument: it’s no wonder the Linux user base is so low. The game has been outright busted for most people for several months now. If people can’t play it, they sure as hell ain’t gonna show up on your stats report, now will they?

    Damn Shame, I was hoping to buy Rust one of these days just to Nuclear teabag people guess that won’t be happening now. My allegiance towards Linux trumps teabagging random people

    Full disclosure from bizarro-land: He personally sent us three keys for Rust.

    Well he wrong, it more like third or fourth class citizen. It goes Console, Mobile, Windows, than Linux or Mac. Look how WB treated their Windows customers, that’s how Linux users are treated all the time. This is the pecking order, and until we start moving a shitload more units it won’t change.

    One way to look at the statement made by this guy:

    LGC has 36 Patrons on Patreon.

    Rust $19.99 times 36 equals $719.64 dollars

    Gary’s Mod $9.99 times 36 equals $359.64 dollars

    total potential revenue equals $1,079.28

    So, he has decided to alienate a potential Customer base which, just within this community of people, could increase the sales and profit generated for his company.

    He is suffering from what a lot of companies fail to see, long term rather than short term profits.

    His and other companies will fail to make the profits they so want to do if they continue to alienate potential Customers who are willing to throw some money at their games..

    Imagine what the numbers would be if you could gather the numbers of users of Steam who do use Linux.

    Rule one in Customer Service, never alienate or insult your current and or future Customers. A bad idea for your bottom line.
