That's because people got the message that you guys didn't care, not
because the programs that needed LinuxThreads magically disappeared.

Off the top of my head I can think of 3 commercial games which need it
(games are virtually never updated more than 6 months after release), and
I have a copy of Domino lying around which needs LT too. I'm sure there
are plenty of others, the change to NPTL really did break a lot of
software.

Most of the old Loki games no longer work, for various reasons, NPTL
amongst them.

I'm not expecting sympathy from you. These days I don't play many
games anyway. However, don't assume that silence on the matter means there
are no problems. It means people got tired of being told that the programs
they use don't matter.
