    Counterstrike and Call of Duty will only run in Linux using a translator program like WINE or Transgaming's Cedega. Even then it's not guaranteed they'll work well, or at all.

    If you're a heavy Windows gamer, keep a MS Windows partition available for those kinds of things. It's just a lot less work.

    Well, there are a number of reasons why you can't run MS Windows software on Linux, not the least of which is Linux is not MS Windows. It's a different OS all together, which handles memory and software completely differently than Windows, Mac OS X, or any other operating system out there.

    Think of it this way: you can't run a Playstation 3 game on an Xbox 360. They're just designed for different devices. If you have an Xbox and want to play Resistance: Fall of Man, you need to keep a PS3 around.

    Many of us do this very thing for MS Windows. It has a huge library of commercial games available for it, so it's handy to keep around for that purpose.

    But perhaps you didn't mean to actually discuss this at length and I'm taking your offhand comment way out of proportion. Long story short, Windows games work better on Windows. Keep it around for that.

    i tried getting Call of Duty 2 installed but it crashes at the install process but i was able to install some older games. Call of Duty might work under wine because i dont think it had pushed to direct x 9 yet but i may be mistaken.

    theres wolfenstein:enemy territory too which is a native linux game, very nice graphics and is pretty much our equivalent to counterstrike.

    Woah. I can't even run those games on my computer. I play nethack, doom 1 and other such things. I have a very old computer. IBM 300PL. I enjoy the games I run on it though. I need to find my copy of Daggerfall. Do you think it would run on Debian Linux without a Windows emulator?
