actually, when you buy it, the industry counts it as a "PC sale".   PC
sales in the gaming industry, right now, means windows.

which license you pay for, unfortunately, doesn't mean jack.

actually, you can buy your windows version from tuxgames.  these sales
are not considered "PC sales" but unofficial linux sales.   do a google
for "tuxgames" and "wolfenstein".  you'll find information on that.

however, tuxgames is in england and their shipping and handling rates
are ... sucky.   i was charged nearly 10 dollars shipping for sin.
same shipping for shogo.  :( :( :(
