    newbie general question on games


    hey

    I am planning on building a desktop and I would like to run Linux on it, since I've had some experience with it in the past. I might also play a few games so I was wondering if you can run any commercial game on Linux or only the ones that are supported? I would like to know that if I can play any game that comes out or if I will be limited to a few.

    thanks a lot

    You will be pretty limited unless you use Cedega, which allows you to play a lot of Windows games on a Linux system.

    There are plenty of good non-commercial games. Check out a list I maintain:

    ID software always releases a Linux Binary with all its games. Doom 3, Quake 4, and Unreal Tournement are examples of these. i have Unreal Tournament 2004 that i have installed and play in linux.
