I would like to hook a question here... Does Wine run games? Should we need to install the game first with Windows, boot with Linux and run e.g: wine megaman.exe or could we install a wingame directly with Linux using wine? How hard is to make it work and, is there any DirectX emulators for Linux or does Wine also the job.
- Well, I still could not migrate totally to Linux, but I prefer it then M$ win. I'm using ONLY Linux in an older computer of mine and trying to install everything I need to use with M$. So far, my scanner and joypads does not work, and some crucial programs, like lmule, don't want to run in my system... as soon as I got it to run, it's good bye to M$....
It's a good thing if you have 2 computers or make a dual boot, if everything you need works under Linux, there's no need to win
- In addition, there are few, but good games available for Linux as Quake 3, Unreal T., Soldier of Fortune, Sim City 3000, The Sims, Heavy Gear 2. (I've heard, but never find to buy, the great Neverwinter NIghts). To make they run is another question
. And consoles emulators runs just fine and usually faster then for Win IMHO. (as xmame, final burn, snes9x... )
