Look up Lokigames

Wine never works for me. VMware (Virtual Machine) works very good for me and it is as fast as a real machine. I played starcraft, myst in VMware. Runs smooth. When I run 3D games, its skippy and not playable. VMware doesn't have support for 3D rendering. I'm thinking of buying it.
