I agree, I buy collectives and like originals. A lot of people automatically think torrent is illegal. This why I specifically said NOT all is illegal.

Exactly. I use torrents a lot to download Linux and BSD ISOs.

Does GOG.com have a linux native copy for sale? I support Good Old Games aka GOG they do alot of work getting old games working and sell them at prices that are ridiculously low.

wine probably requires multilib to work with this game mentioned and other stuff.

On the piracy stuff:

I have reported this thread many times, and since there was no mod response by now, I'm going to assume that LQ is okay with it.

Carry on.

It may be a bit of a logical leap to assume that LQ tolerates piracy. We're not moderators.
