I have don a census and the sim community does not like Linux, therefore it's up to them...

You must realize that "The Sims" was written for the windows env... so trying to use an OS for which it was never intended would require some work on your part. \

My point being, if you have a windows app the use windows... Ligic is the key here...

We are not trying to recruit people here... It is not up to us to make something work or you will go back to windows... sure there are things that will not work in Linux but if you abandon a good OS on that premis then you miss the point of Linus and are probably better of using Windows...

Good Luck

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
