i think that list could prove useful, although i agree it could be split on to apps and games, makes all sense.
even if devs don't look at it right now maybe someone does and wants to hack on top voters.
the MTGO 3 example is interesting, i'm the maintainer of the game, and that surge in the forums of wizards made many windows users vote for it in wine. although it's not a good measure for the importance of the game in the linux comunity it would be interesting to see if it is the pushing app to make secur32 and schannel work on wine or something else.

Do developers set priorities based on what's on the voting list anyway? I mean, does any developer ever really say 'Wow, Bioshock has42 votes, maybe I should work on that tomorrow'? That's almost certainly not the case.
I know for a fact the list is at least somewhat distorted. Magic The Gathering: Online is #3 on the list, and I was basically the one that helped getit to that position by asking people on other sites to vote if they wanted to see it working under Linux. About 100 people voted for it within 72 hours.Despite that, it's not a very popular app. It's something I think Linux gamers might be interested in, in general, but even on Windows it probably has lessthan 50,000 active accounts.
