post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi there, i am new,soo let's begin with my question. I have a laptop:
Dell Inspiron 1564
CPU: Intel core i3-330m 2.13 Gh'z
RAM: 4 Gb DDR3
HDD: 500 Gb
VGA: ATi Mobillity Radeon HD 5450 1 Gb
So, my question is, i have a steam account with Team Fortress 2 (TF2 for easy writing), can i install steam on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Long term support) and eventualy play TF2 with sufficiently performance? Thanks for the answers!
Currently I am running a Windows 7 x64 Ultimate - Original CD Key!

Not sure about the performance to the dot, but it should be equal to or a little bit less than what you get in Windows. TF2 wont natively run in Ubuntu, so you'll need to use Wine.

That is why I am asking here. I have this Ubuntu program called PlayOnLinux. I've installed it, then installed steam, then TF2 and it started. But when it came the time to go in to the main menu it crashed and I had to restart manualy my laptop.
