or just be old school and use wine, which is basically a free alternative for cedega that's been around for ages :whistling:

configuration is annoying though, gotta admit. The most common thing is to dual boot a pc with linux and windoze, so you get the best of both worlds.


Wine doesn't automatically work with most games, and if it does, you have probably modified it yourself, which I tried once :\. Just stick with cedega, its great and supports all the biggest titles, maybe not the newest, but the most popular!

Plus Cedega uses wine, but a modified version (wineX).

if you want a system that allows you to do both, and the gaming is the more important, stick with Windows.

If gaming isn't more important then designing, dual boot.
