Sure TransGaming has a ways to go...but for now its the only out if you don't want to run Windows but still want Windows based games in Linux.
If you think about it though, Windows games are never going to run 100% on Linux and till people start making native versions, what other choice do you have?
I for one want to do away with Windows and rely on a free OS.
I finally did it:
1) Reformated my Hard disk and make a clean Mandrake 10.1 install setting default video mode at 16 bits/pixel
2) Installed the point2play RPM
3) Installed Cedega using point2play
4) changed my cdrom device and cdrom moint point permissions
5) Installed Collin McRae2 using point2play
6) Start point2play using default setting, except that I select win200 instead of win98
At least my success rate jumped from 0 to 20%, not bad
But I'm not ready to erase my windows partition.
At least now I can reply to the original post with: Yes, I use Mandrake for gaming.
Maybe a more accurate answer would be: Cedega runs on Mandrake with
games and transgaming give priorities to FPS games. If you are into racing games, the rate of succes might be low.
