Probably depends on how good you are at coding...

I'm sure wine will do it eventually. In the meantime cedega is only going to cost $15, which is a bit cheaper than windows or HL2.

Oh yeah, I hate steam. A lot. And I will never ever buy another Valve game after the nightmare I had installing HL2 even in windows!!! It took me 5 hours and it hosed a win98se install... I didn't bother with cedega after that, though I use cedega for other games...

Then use it in XP and skip linux. I get a bit up tight about people whinging about the price of cedega when they pay heaps for XP and HL2 and all the rest. Nothing personal... I just see it week after week here...

The money you put into things like cedega helps wine in the long run.
