Hello Adam,

I am not sure what you are proposing.

The website has a demo section ( unity3d.com/webplayer ), which
installs its own plug-in, called unity web player. I do not understand
how it is any related to shockwave - which is itself available on
adobe's website ( www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates ), as
well as open alternatives on ubuntu software catalog.

Moreover, Wikipedia links to a couple of reports that a version of the
Unity engine for Linux is being developed
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unity_(game_engine)#Linux )

So if I understand, your proposal was to build an open-source version
of the unity3d engine for Linux? It might prove quite a feat to
reverse-engineer their closed software, but not impossible. Do you
want to start such a project?
