    Well, actually, wine runs Half-Life 1 quite good: i often play it. Of course, it's not as fast as it was on windows, but still it is possible to play hard on DM over the net. I don't really get the point of this playonlinux application... it's based on wine so if wine doesn't run some app this won't hack it too.

    The Advantage of using Playonlinux over Wine is nothing but checking out dependencies. i.e. It helps like package manager. Playonlinux Automatically checks for the dependencies. helps to install easily.
    I can simply say "It reduces complexity "
