Wanting to go 100% dark side, but.....


I am wanting to convert my 3rd and only Windows computer to a distro of Linux. The only thing that has been holding me back is I still play commercial games occasionally.

This was until I found http://www.transgaming.com (Cedega) which allows you to play commercial Windows games on Linux. The problem with this is that it cost $5 USD /month (more for me ) and I donít want to pay that because I sometimes donít even play a single game in a month.

After some reading I found that Cedega is based of a version of Wine called Winex, but the SourceForge project seems now abandoned.

Is the only way for me to dual boot?

The game database for playable games with cedega is very small and the preformance is not the best, many games play in windows. I play many games and I found it best to dual boot. I actually have a dual boot with 2 seperate HD's, one for M$ and the other for my linux.

Thanks for the reply, I think thats what I'll do and the better developers that release Linux native binarys I will use them in that case.
