Poker software for Linux?


Is it just me - or is every single online poker room non linux compliant

It is such a huge pain in the ass having to remotely connect to my wife's Windows machine every time I want to play online poker. HELP!

Yea, there are very few poker rooms that work on Linux

http://www.linuxpoker.net lists two of the major ones that do, which have worked out great for me. Down the road I'm hoping more poker rooms will see the Linux market for what is really and make their software compliant.

I like Pacific the best - they have a good deposit bonus, and also seem to have a bunch of really crappy players (which makes me happy lol). Both are good though.

Well, I prefer Pacific because they regularly have Linux Users Tournaments - it is kinda fun competing against a bunch of other nerds
