    windows games dont work on linux. Igore anyone that points out WineX or cedega as theri directx implementation is horrid and will most likely crash your game then let you play it.

    If you want to run windows apps and games use windows. If you want to use linux apps and games use linux. its that simple.

    I have a Windows XP SP2 system used for customization and gaming/internet. Then I also have a Linux Redhat system used for testing and programming. I enjoy the clean look of linux but untill more things are supported I will stick with Windows For my entertainment.
