Tim Schaefer on Linux port

|At a Reddit AMA, someone asked:
"How did the Humble Indie Bundles influence your decisions to port your games to Linux? What was the porting process like?"
The response -
"TimOfLegend: Linux was like a party that sounded fun we were afraid to go to because we didn't think we'd know anybody there, and the HiB guys were like your socially fearless friend who says, "Don't worry, we'll go together." And when he gets to your house he says, "Is that what you're wearing?" and you say, "uh..." and he says, "Don't worry. I know a guy." And he lends you a cool leather jacket and you go to the party and when you walk in there's a needle scratch and everybody turns to look at you and your friend gives a cool nod and then everybody goes back to the party. So kind of like a John Hughes film. Hope that helps explain things. That's about as technical as I can go. I just hope I don't accidentally knock over a beer can pyramid that some tough guys are building.
Oh and also, if you want to be cool at the party, stay away from wine. (haha! Linux joke!)"
