Im looking to shift over to Linux even more, currently I have my windows machine primarily for gaming. I rarely use it of anything else. I have installed ubuntu 12.10 on my Macbook and i would like to transistion to this machine for my general needs as much as possible. It has a ATI 512MB GPU which is pretty powerful and good enough to play games at the macbook resolution. I have not been playing much else other than dota on my PC so this is the main game i would like to move over if possible. My questions are as follows:
  • Does anyone have experience playing DOTA2 in wine/playonlinux ?
  • Is the 3D performance in Virtualbox good enough to play games, i would just use virtual machine if it is ?
Any help on this would be a great help.

Thanks
Bill
