    i managed to gt FM2005 running in wine but it won't save. ah well, unless FM2006 can promise better support then i will stick with NWN.
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    Linux could do with some more Strategy games though.
    How was Rise of Nations? I saw some clips and thought it looked interesting . Personally I like some strategy games, like Command and Conquer. But they get quite boring after a while. I think it was Age of Empires II that really put me off.

    Blizzard will never port to Linux (at least that's the last I heard). Runs pretty good under wine/cedega...

    I'm a FPS kind of guy; any kind I will play.

    RPG/MMORPG are cool too, but it has to be a good one. Fable held my interest for a long time, as did Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. Oh and who could forget World of Warcraft?

    Rise of Nations is nice. I has good graphics and its quite deep. For example, you need to research Commerce, Civic Centre, Military, etc to increase the number of people, cities, or caravans you can make. You also need to research these techs to advance to new ages.

    Then resources are basically unlimited. You can make farms, mines, lumber camps, trade routes(depends on your commerce research), and Universities to get knowledge.

    It's an Empire Earth clone with lesser ages. The university thing and the techs are kind of new.
