You claim that gaming on Linux is in a sorry state because of the installers? The INSTALLERS??

There are tons of good arguments to make about Linux gaming, both good and bad. Let's talk DRI/DRM. Let's talk sound latency (though that's getting MUCH better). Let's talk about packaging inattention by distros. Let's talk about the general lack of inspired artwork (though, surprisingly, sound is usually quite good). But, to go on at length about InstallShield clones is just plain strange. Especially when the distributions have pretty much solved the packaging problem to the satisfaction of their users.

Well, I'm done here. I'm going to apt-get or emerge flightgear.
