    I wasn't saying for anti-cheat, but rather performance and ease of use. WoW is fairly prone to random errors in WINE from patch to patch.

    it's getting better and better. the direction is really good and i hope ridiculous DRm clients are either removed or also made compatible. they are holding back some major titles.


    good support for older games. i mean Far Cry 2 - i get stuttering on winxp and lag with everything set on low as well as some additional tweaks. in linux and on same PC it works fluently on medium settings. wow!

    many games work out of the box in wine and work just fine with no noticeable performance penalty. so we got quite a few working. and the appetites of the kids have grown
    Read the easy to understand, lots of pics Ubuntu manual.
    Do i need antivirus/firewall in linux?
    Disk backup (works on newer PC): Clonezilla
    User friendly full disk backup Redobackup is now back as Rescuezilla

    You could start a thread about it in the Gaming & Leisure section if you wanted some help with it.

    Feedback to devs? Game devs know that I bought the game in 2002 or 1998 or 1993. Seems like sufficient feedback to me.
    As far as they know, you bought those games for Windows, only play them on Windows, and you are not part of a market for non-Windows games because you like Windows so much. Whereas if you buy games through the Linux Steam client it counts as a Linux sale and the optional playtime statistics show that people are playing the game on Linux.

    It's very easy for a game developer to think "there is no market for Linux games, so I shouldn't bother learning how to make one." You can show them that isn't true.
