World of Warcraft on linux

What are my options of installing World of Warcraft on linux without paying for it a program to do it?

Not bad. You could try it via Wine or get the CVS version of Transgaming.

There are also online petitions to request a Linux port - I haven't linked them here because, frankly, there's little point.

Why don't you just apt-get install wine ?
