Windows Emulator.
 
Other than wine what other Windows Emulators out there are good to install (free or not) for Ubuntu Linux? I am a gamer and none of my games work at the moment even with wine installed. At the moment my currently installed games are:

World Of Warcraft
Sins of a Solar Empire Beta 2
World in Conflict Beta
Half Life 2 With Gary's mod
And Eve-online

Although emulators are there but better play them on windows only.

so theres no way to switch all my games to Linux compatibility at all?

Which language do you use?

For games I suggest you use the Cedega. It costs 15$ for 3 months and 5$ for any additional months...

With proper configuration you can play some of those games with Wine.

Wine is one option to get it done. Just try crossover. Though I have not used the application you can anyway give it a try.

Gaming is the only reason to Dual Boot.

:-) Now that can't be a reason for shifting to Windows.

World Of Warcraft works fine with my Crossover Professional Linux (http://www.codeweavers.com)

Your other games I not play...so not much info on that. But you can check the list of compatible programs on the Codeweavers website

If dual-booting isn't agreeable, then you can use qemu to run Wind@ws while working in Linux. (In Ubuntu you should be able to get it by doing "sudo apt-get install qemu") You won't have completely 'native' operating speeds but depending on your computer, it might still be acceptable. There is a nice tutorial here http://wiki2.archlinux.org/index.php/Qemu

If I remember correctly the virtualization offered by qemu won't give any 3D-acceleration so gaming would be kind lost hope. I remember reading that some might offer 3D-support in near future.
