    Cool

    However I am too scared to try and run StarCraft2-HotS, Diablo 3 or WoW-MoP via wine mainly due to all of this: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5978861022

    Getting my whole BNET account closed will mean that I would then be done with SC2, D3 and WoW as having to repurchase all those games with their expansions would not be worth it. The sad thing is that Blizzard could just come out and release native clients for all of them seeing as there already exists Mac OS X versions running with OpenGL and most propably SDL.

    One could understand that it is trivial to recompile wine and alter some of the timekeeping functions and clock functions and as none of those games can interrogate the server for every single time-check as it will lead to a massive DOS attack on the bnet servers.

    This is the only single sad reason why there still exists a windows partition on my machine for dual booting...

    I not 100% sure the risk is as big as that thread seems to imply, ive been running wow on wine since vanilla and never had any issues.
    Im doubtful of any native ports being easy for blizzard, the opengl implementations of their games has become increasingly poor, I play using the direct3d windows client in wine and it outperforms my osx install on the same pc (and using the opengl flag in wine even lowers the features and fps of the windows client)

    //edit: I dont reside in the US so in case of banning me for that I atleast have some options (in the EU you cant just stop supplying a service the other party is paying for, even if an option for that has been added to an EULA)

    thanks again. I didn't know if the other nice was directed at me

    it's Debian based with xfce standard so however demanding that might be. I run all Linux distros in VirtualBox so I don't really pay much attention to how demanding they are.
