An anonymous reader writes "Stainless Games has been fundraising for Carmageddon: Reincarnation, a modern day remake of the classic Carmageddon racing games, on Kickstarter for weeks. Stainless said that if they hit $600,000 in pledges before time runs out, they would commit themselves to creating a Linux port of the game, as well as a MacOS port. Today they made it official: the fundraising has come so close to netting $600K overall, with a few more hours left to go, that they are officially committing themselves to creating a Linux port of the new game. PC gamers will get to play Carmageddon 4 first, with a February 2013 release date. The MacOS & Linux versions will follow the PC version later in 2013."

    Don't you mean Windows gamers will get it first?

    Yeah, that's the reason I frequently ignore these Kickstarter projects. Hint: If you want Linux users to give you money, don't wait until the last second to tell them that they'll be able to play your game.

    Since when did PC become synonymous with "Microsoft Windows"? It seems to me that everyone is doing it, even old timers who should know better.

    Writers pay attention, I've come up with some alternatives;
    ICx86HW: Intel compatible x86 Hardware (which would still imply Linux support, among other operating systems, just like "PC" does)
    MWXP+: Microsoft Windows XP or later (you'd probably need some trademark symbols and (R) characters in there)
    IDCTIPCM: I don't care that I am in the pocket of a corporate monopoly

    Probably the second one. Or you could just go back to saying "Windows", and everyone would understand perfectly well what you meant. "PC" isn't perfect, it's not even close to accurate. It's highly deceptive and flat out wrong. Of course, those of us at the pointy end of the stick are already aware of your hypocrisy and can make informed choices despite your idiocy and obvious mismarketing.

    But those who are not even aware of the stick being pointed will keep on living in blissful ignorance because you perpetuate the status quo, dumbing down society to the next level.

    What's the rate now? Minus one level per day? At least since 9gag and 4chan became a "thing" with the young ones. Where are the days of somethingawful - where UNIX, DOS and Windows programmers knew how to tell one operating system from another? How long until we're at Idiocracy levels? Let Luke Wilson be your Jesus.
