Windows vs Linux? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Wine runs very few programs well (very buggy)... Its better to just dual boot, it takes what a whole minute to restart from 1 OS to the other, big deal... As a starter I'd suggest running Ubuntu, you'll be amazed how much faster linux is than windows (I can run 6 separate tabs of internet, movie, Music player, Openoffice.org and a few other insignificant programs while scrolling around with the XGL cube without any lag) and is far more stable on OCs

There is some programs that do run fine. They are just rare.
Diablo II
Baludurs Gate
Warcraft III
World Of Warcraft (some times has problems)
Starcraft

If the program you want to run has alot of Silver or worse ratings its going to be alot easier to duel boot. So its worth a look to see if your favirote application will run. But most of the time your out of luck.

Im not sure how good Celega is because I have not used it.
