    Starcraft2 likely to work with wine !

    From the official site:
    Will StarCraft II be available on Mac simultaneously with PC?

    As with all of Blizzard's recent releases, StarCraft II will ship on both PC and Mac simultaneously.
    Will StarCraft II take advantage of DirectX 10? What other graphical goodies are included?

    The game will be compatible with DirectX 10, and we're still considering whether there will be exclusive DirectX 10 graphic effects, but the graphics engine will also be very scalable to ensure that a wide range of different systems will be capable of running StarCraft II. The new engine is also capable of rendering very large units, as well as large numbers of units on screen together. Havok physics have been integrated into the engine for added realism as well.
    Translation: Mac version means that they're going to have OpenGL renderer, too. This means SC2 will have a good chance to work under Wine. Past Blizzard games work in Wine reasonably well.

    Someone should start a petition to make it run natively on linux. That would be a dream come true.

    Yeah. I'm waiting for that... I do not wine or anything that related to windows on my computer, so I did not even bother to install wine on my machine... I was playing Starcraft most of the time when I was a windows user (I'm an ex-MCSE but now I'm only playing linux native games. I'll be more than happy if I can install starcraft with apt-get.

    To be fair, there was a rumor that Blizzard would announce their new game on V.19 . And they did.
