We would love to have a linux compatible PW/Lobby/etc. We do not have the developers for it.

It is not about dropping support, it is about not having anyone to create that support in the first place. The game is open source and open development, if linux people want to contribute, we encourage it.

Planetwars isnt even made yet. Zero-K runs fine on Linux. Planetwars is simply additional functionality, which happens to have no linux developers to work at the same pace as Licho does (And even that is fairly slowly, he is only one guy).

anyway, it will still be possible for linux players to just play in the pw battles by joining the the battlerroom right? They would "only" miss out on the fleets metagame, unit buying and whatever else is planned. ie unit buying could be done by lobby bot? like !buy 5 spherebot
Yes you are right. Linux people will be able to play in planetwars game they will just lose rich gui to play metagame. And yes I wanted to support basic actions through lobby commands like you say.
