Are there any Rainbow Six ports at all for Linux? My little brother has been bothering me about this for 3 weeks straight and I'm about to strangle him. He's tried every combination of keywords containing rainbow six & linux. I told him if he hasn't found anything by now... it doesn't exist. Can someone officially tell him there is no such thing? We're new to Linux and using Linspire, but even I knew a lot of PC games were manufactured solely for Windows and maybe, maybe Mac...

Also would Wine be able to run Rainbow Six?

No, there are no ports of Rainbow Six for Linux. You can try your luck at getting it working with Wine (check the official wine site especially the app database) and if you dare to, see if Cedega properly supports it.

Know, however, that you will have a fairly "decent" graphics card for Wine or Cedega to work at reasonably fast speeds, though.

I like Age of Mythology and Halo (but I don't think they'll ever be ported since one's made by MS and the other's made by Bungie who was bought by MS )

If it is of any assurance, Wine 0.95+ can run AOM, couldn't say anything about the speed, though.

Battlefront 2. And any of the other Star Wars games would be cool too.

Are you sure? Last time I tried with Cedega it wouldn't let me type in my registration code. . . been a while though.

You bet...

BTW, if you watch the Star Wars Bonus Disc for the DVD release of the Old Trilogy (IV-VI),and watch the feature about Episode III, The Video Game, look closely at the computer screens: they are using Linux to develop it!!!, If that is the case, why can't they port it to Linux (or have they already...)

Hmmm. . . maybe you should inquire about this on a Star Wars forum? Perhaps if they knew there was some interest, they would port it (or at least consider porting it).

Of all games, I think I'd like Halo to be ported. But hey, I guess it's just not gonna happen :-) Redmondian fr**ks as they are... Ah well, I got CE running on Cedega, or at least a little bit ;-) So for the next few weeks I can live with it :-) (PM me if you want to know how.)

Well just to be technical, Microsoft bought it from Bungie, so if you're pointing at who to blame for Halo PC not working on Linux, don't blame Microsoft, blame Bungie (for making it hard for Wine and Cedega to run).

MS didn't buy it from Bungie, they actually bought Bungie.
