    Really Lame Question:

    I'd like to try a 3D game for Linux as I never have.
    Is the game?
    http://www.3dgamers.com/games/wolfensteinet/

    Do I have to buy a Windows CD to play it, or is there a Linux version? b/c the people at the game store always mock me when I ask about Linux games (bastards). Is the game free?

    I guess I don't get it.

    Windows software isn't directly compatable with Linux. Although some companies release Linux versions (Unreal Tounament 2004, Doom 3 is on it's way). I believe there is a program that lets you use Windows apps in Linux, but I can't remember what it's called.
