Is it being written with portability in mind? Do you think there's any chance that the Linux build will be compilable for PPC with only minimal changes to the source?

I always figured it must be when you consider there's also a Mac build of Legacy. Then again I don't know squat about how these guys designed Legacy.

I think all the main developers are on Linux.
The C++ version should be quite portable, it only requires SDL, SDL Mixer and OpenTNL. The last one might cause some trouble.

Thanks Pate. What does OpenTNL do? I've never heard of it before.

OpenTNL is used for the new network code (Torque Network Library, the one used in games like Tribes 2).
Like Pate said, since we will have at least a MacOSX, Linux and Win32 port, Linux on PPC shouldn't be an issue (same goes for Solaris, IRIX and other Unix systems).
If you want to compile binaries for us, feel free to join the team, as I don't think we have people using Linux on PPC yet.

I wonder how long before someone comes in here and asks for a 64-bit version. :D

I would like the 128 bit version

There will certainly be an AMD 64 bits version on Linux too (I plan to upgrade my compute next year). If that works, there is probably no reason why it wouldn't work on some other 64bits architecture.
