Many of our users have talked about wishing they could switch from Windows, but the overwhelming hold back has often been the gaming support. Is it really as bad as it seems? We talked to our local Linux guru Glider to set the record straight.
"While Wine does a great job at running most Windows applications under Linux, certain games sometimes just won't work. Call it bad programming, call it faith, but the fact is that some applications refuse to accept Wine. The guys over at Transgaming noticed this and used a hole in the X11 licensing to create a proprietary fork of Wine. But the developers didn't claim they invented the warm water, and initially called their 'version' WineX."
