Blizzplanet is invoking a call to all Linux users to join their crusade. Their goal is to organize many gaming players to petition
an official request toward Blizzard Entertainment and Vivendi Universal which purpose is to port World of Warcraft MMORPG to Linux. The Mac OS X programmers at Blizzard might port the game to Linux natively if there is a considerable amount of players requesting it. OpenAL recently announced
that Apple is now officially endorsing OpenAL and has provided a new branch of Mac OS X code which is now in CVS (needs Apple's latest CoreAudio SDK installed before compiling). What the fan site pursues is that Blizzard Entertainment integrates OpenAL into their Mac OS X build of World of Warcraft. This way the Blizzard's MMORPG could share OpenAL libraries with Linux and ship a hybrid PC/Mac/Linux retail CD allowing Linux users to play World of Warcraft. From there with the success of the MMORPG and its high number of Linux players as global model, the Game Industry may take the Linux OS user more serious.
