    Re: Should i remove windows?

    If you have no use for Windows even a really out of the way use, then get rid of it.

  13. Re: Ubuntu Saucy "broke" my Crossover installation

    As was said ia32-libs is gone, its not a "new issue" as no other distro has them anyways. Most the stuff now use a "multiarch" package meaning it can support both 32 and 64bits. What you have with...

    Re: Call of Duty: Black Ops II

    The Call of Duty series as far as I am aware have Activision as the distributor (much like EA is the distributor for BF series). That makes it quite unlikely to see them on Linux unfortunately.
