Please excuse me if im posting this on the wrong forum. I have slackware 13.1 installed on my desktop computer. I have a little brother that likes to play games, so I was wondering if it would be wise to install Windows 7 on Virtual box to run games ? I dont have time to go through all the complications of installing extra software for wine when installing games ( I think Wine is awesome , please dont get me wrong ). I have 4G's of ram . Would that be the right thing to do ?
Distribution: Gentoo (desktop), Arch linux (laptop)
Starcraft 2 is way too much hardware demanding for a virtual computer. You will have to dual boot to window to play it smoothly. And if it is for gaming, I recommend window XP SP3 to win7. It takes less RAM and less disk space. You will need 12G of hard disk for the monster starcraft 2, don't waste another 10 on just the operating system that won't do anything besides game.
