i guess it could just be a matter of getting daemon tools running on WINE. this program will emulate pretty much any copy-protection scheme. i ran doom 3 (on my windows box with daemon tools emulating the copy-protection) the day it came out.
i understand the cracked executable technique (and i've used it before), but i thought there might be something more universal and robust like daemon tools.
such a tool would perhaps be more secure than cracked executables (if it was free/open-source software). although a cracker that would try to take over a GNU/Linux box by modifying a windows executable has really found a convoluted and round-about method of achieving his/her goal. nevertheless, it is a possibility.
