    I think 4, not sure, stop using around a year ago. The main games I like are SIMS2, total war, phoaroh and some even older games. I got a bit upset when more people voted against Sims2 than for. The real stick was becouse I bought sims1 for Linux and got a free 3 month membership to Transgaming. When there was no comment on Sims2, I kinda left. I was paying money, but could not play any games that where not native to linux.
    Dont get me wrong, it started really well, winex3 will run civIII, a game I like, but stopped in later versions.
    I now mainly play what ever I get for linux, and windows just has Sims2, I do everything else on the Linux side, but I need to really get excited to play on the windows side.
    Sorry for being so negative, I can gaurantee that there are more people who support and like Cedega than against it, but they kinda let me down, to memory there was only about 20 of us wanting Sims2, to about 180 odd for half life 2, so the majority win I'm afraid. Check the site, they have a list of supported games with an easy measurement and I am sure you will find a favorite game supported!! Subscribe to the news letter, I'm sure you dont need to be a mamber, and the staff are very diverse and interesting.

    oh hey forgot ... did anyone mention about www.happypenguin.org its a good start point to find games to play. I think I spend more time looking than playing, and I am always keen to support commercial native linux titles (not a huge fan of UT but always buy it and play a bit). Some may have seen comments on a game I came across recently. There is a new company that is porting, unfortunatly I have forgotten the companies name (any one remember please let me know), but they are planning to do X2 the threat.

    It's Linux Game Publishing. They're porting MS Windows games to Linux. I don't see much point in a company going "the other way around" since most Linux games are open-source and have MS Windows ports already.

    I'm not understanding what you're saying here. How would porting Linux games to MS Windows help the library of Linux games?

    They are. Linux Games Publishing is porting MS Windows games to Linux. What confused me was you seemed to be asking whether they were going the other way around...
