Trickykid - apologies, I read it as if you were having to drop back into Windows> Maybe I'll keep my big mouth (keyboard?) shut in future. :P

Thanks Jeremy, I had visions of this thread becoming overrun and actual programs being buried by requests fo certain games.

I have seen some games sites offer a small program to allow their Windows games run on Linux. If this were possible for programs then we wouldn't need to buy 2 versions of the software.

I know of a few people who would switch if Macromedia would allow ports.

All that game authors need to do is to use program code that is supported by Wine. A large number of games is fully functional in Wine, and (I am writing this for 3-4th time in this thread alone) using additions like PlayOnLinux allows you to install and create environment for each supported game separately. I think I counted 70+ Windows only games in PlayOnLinux menu.

Elfbowl This is a ten pin bowling game that will make you laugh out aloud. You have to knock down the Santas. They tell you if you miss they shout terrible and they even fart!

+1 for that. I'd pay exactly the same for the linux version as I do for the windows one.

rq-sssp-client.x86

Found a Linux version of rq-sssp-client. It is some kind of ELF file; I assume this is a bit old. Can someone look at it and attempt to update to a newer binary, if not too much? Strip .txt from attachment "rq-sssp-client.x86". Thanks

Code:
sasha@reactor: file rq-sssp-client.x86.txt
ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
There's what sort of binary it is. Can't simply "update to a newer binary" though - you'd need to get the source code and try to re-compile it on your system; and, you'd need the dependencies for it, whatever they are.

Have you seen: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet...12&id=15421056

So if ADesk can get it running on Mac OSX (BSD with a different desktop), it should really not be that difficult to port it to Linux with Gnome / KDE right?

No, it would be very difficult.

Cocoa API is way different.

Any decent games to run naively on Linux. Granted more seem to be coming out, but the only reason I even have windows on a box these days is there is either a hardware compatibility issue, or I want to play a game.

As what I've known Linux is a computer operating system. It is open-source, which makes the operating system cheap to use, or even completely free. I have a question, can this improve my computer's speed and performance?

A.) Unless you're looking for enterprise software, Linux is indeed completely free. Free as in speech, and free as in beer.

B.) Linux cannot physically make the computer faster, in terms of hardware. Only upgrading the various components of the system will actually, physically increase the computers' speed.

C.) As perceived, Linux will increase the speed and performance, as well as the perceived longevity of the hardware. Linux uses less resources than Windows, and is very efficient for a very long time, even on legacy hardware. The computer will 'feel' faster. If you go the route of a less 'congested' desktop environment, you can make crappy hardware seem instantaneous.

sam broadcaster

Spacialaudio wrote this bril program, I use Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, even though idcj is good, it's not a patch on sam.

I was forced to run a winxp box, next to my main box.

It is a proper broadcasting program

Not everything in linux is free. Ms seems to want to sue everybody because of it. Ubuntu is bad about using mono apps that are based upon ms based source code. Look what has happened to android. Caveat emptor. I love linux and try to avoid anything ms. In fact though I have a couple of licenses for XP, we have not used a Microsoft OS in several years. Now that I am learning C and bash, there are no apps I care to be ported.
