I've just opened a support ticket about this. I will keep you informed...
EDIT : Here's the reply I got from support :
We are not able to offer the Linux version of the game because of the technical limitations connected with the multiplayer functionality.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
I'm seriously wondering what can block multiplayer here, especially considering it works on Windows. A Galaxy requirement maybe ? Usually, when there's a multiplayer-related problem, more often than not it's because of some distributor policy enforcing a game client and/or some other form of tracking.
Ah the good old times, when it was possible to play with friends without having to report to someone else.
Anyway, while happier with it, I suppose many of us would still be happy without multiplayer...
