I will greatly accept the switch if it can be proven that Games will run as good under linux as they do under windows.
Im a windows guy at heart, but I do work on unix systems at work.
Im a gamer, and that will never change.
I had switched over to linux about 4 years ago, and I couldnt play crap on linux without dual booting to windows. (I think it was Wine emulation they were running under)
Now have there been some improvements in being able to play windows games smoothly on linux?
If so, please let me know, and please point me to references which say that is true.
here is my setup and what I currently play:
asus p4ce800-deluxe mobo (onboard gig-e)
bfg 6800 ultra
1gb corsair XMS pro memory
4x200gb western dig sata hd's in raid 1 (2 logical drives)
2x 160gb OS and data drives.
sb audigy 2
Logitech g15 keyboard
Logitech 6.1 surround
Logitech G5 Laser mouse
Ceative Zen Xtra jukebox.
Couple of flash drives.
Dual layer dvd burner ( i think its a lite-on.. been a while since i checked)
Games I am currenly playing, and want to continue playing...
Godfather the game
Freelancer (old standby favorite)
World of Warcraft (just dumped my account actually)
Rollercoaster Tycoon 3
From what i can tell Cedera is the app of choice for a lot of games.
Any suggestions on linux flavor as well? or web sites to point me in the right direction. I will prob dual boot until i can get a handle on things for a month or 2.
