    This spyware: http://log.nadim.cc/?p=78

    They do not call it spyware, but essentially it is spyware.

    And actually I believe there is software available that you can push it up to DX10 or so by running it all through OpenGL. Never went that far because I've never had the need, but I've read about it, and was careful looking at my OpenGL/OpenCL specs when buying my graphics cards with that in mind, if I were to some day find the need/desire to do so. I think there is a commercial fork of PlayOnLinux, also aimed at Mac users, so they can attempt to play some of the PC titles. Been awhile though, forgot what it's called.
    Sure, it's not a triple A title but that doesn't mean it runs easily on Linux, it's still a Windows game. When I tried it before under Ubuntu 10.10 sound would just stop playing after a while and now it runs perfect so Wine makes progress. Therefore more chance of running (especially older) Windows games on Linux. Great to read DX10 stuff might work too.

    Nice Question. I love Linux (because it is virus free). I am Linux user since 2009.

    Well plz correct me if i am wrong but i feel there is nothing called "Virus free"
    No one can stop you if you yourself wish to jump in fire. But for several factors (it would be too much to describe here, one can find it on several websites) it is relatively difficult for a linux machine to get infected, unless one foolishly or intentionally wishes to cut his own throat.

    3 of 4 computers are Linux based. I got my start with 10.04.

    I use Ubuntu for 2 years)
    Yesterday smth. happened with my PC and with X-server, I think. And no one distributive can't work. It's a tragedy for me. I can't go back to Windows as a main system. I tried to fix my PC already two days, but useless(
    So this two days I ought to use my 10" laptop) It's not convinient, but it's better than using Windows))
    I also have and Windows on my PC. But I use it only for Photoshop. And little by little I try to use Gimp)

    dgib...WINE is an emulator that permits one to run quite a few Windoze applications..it is in the software center.

    Been running different XFCE distros for quite a few years. Actually the whole family runs Linux. Gave up windows due to the constant stability issues. We find Xubuntu to be nicely polished and very stable. If I can run and learn it at 63 yrs of age anyone can. Trying to teach myself python as well and its a lot of fun!!

    wine is not an emulator. that is what wine stands for . just had to throw that out there.
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.
