    Post Calling All Linux World of Warcraft Players

    I see that this has been posted before what is different is that I have opened up a support thread with world of Warcraft and I am making a list of players who use Linux and play world of Warcraft. I am hitting as many forums as I can. If you would like to show your support copy and paste http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1922569887#1 into your browser log in and reply to the thread as number 2 or 3.etc. Anyway The goal is to make World Of Warcraft see how many of us their are. So feel free to show your support

    Why? WoW works just fine under Wine with just a couple of modifications. I actually get a higher FPS in Linux than I did in Windows 7.

    A lot of games do work better in their native environment. However, since WoW's OpenGL adaptation has been worked on so much for Mac users, we penguins get to enjoy the same benefits as they do. Plus, we have the option to run in DirectX mode with only a small cut in FPS. Of course, your experience may vary; it might just be me that's getting 50 FPS in Orgrimmar with multisampling and the works.
