The lights are on
Valve has been experimenting with bringing some of its games to the Linux platform, starting with Left 4 Dead, and it is already getting some impressive results.
According to a recent blog post by Valve the developers were able to get Left 4 Dead 2 to run at 315 frames per second on Linux while Windows runs the game at 270.6 frames per second.
Ultimately, the extra 44.4 frames per second that Linux is able to pull off over Windows is mostly negligible, but it speaks highly of the Linux operating system and shows that it has a lot of potential.
