This is awesome ! I may very well run Linux on my machine when I have a machine. I have one question: What of force feedback drivers? Or writing one’s own?

Only issue I have with this as a Ubuntu 13.04 user is that there is no drivers for logitech wheels on linux.

@Ryan…. Logitech wheels are support in linux-3.8.0 (13.04’s default kernel). you can also grab the absolute latest kernel from the Kernel Team’s PPA.

I would like to buy a month+ but without a demo I can’t determine if it will support 3 screens on linux?

1280×1024 – 1280×1024 – 1280×1024

Please let me know if it does.

Does the FFB for Logitec products feel the same as on windows?

Is Linux and my Logitech Momo supported?

Short answer: yes. Longer answer – there are some qualifiers. When it comes to Linux and Mac, the wheel companies don’t work with Apple etc to make the proper drivers, so wheel range and/or force feedback may not be ideal.
