well you can crack it, or you can get an open beta version of one, i know cedega works for ubuntu, what kind of Linux OS do you have?? and honestly i think cedega is worth paying for its only like 5 or 20$
Cedega is the closest you're going to get to dx9 in linux. Wine is a little buggy in the DirectX department. Note: cedega still isn't perfect, so performance takes a hit and it is known to crash. Sometimes.
I'd recommend paying the fee...come on it's a lot cheaper than Windows XP, and certainly less than any hardware upgrade.
