I heard from various sources that it isn't that strict - it's mainly
because the judges are testing the games on their own computers (i.e. no
festival-sponsored machines) and it's somehow unreasonable to require them
to install Linux there.

If we can get into contact with the judges (Alex Dunne will know them) we
can organize some people from nearby Linux User Groups who can lend the
judges a computer running Linux for the testing.

So if you're serious about participating we'll see what we can do.
