StarCraft and Wine... wow!!
Wine has really come a long way! I see no difference in how StarCraft performs under regular Wine as compared to natively with Windows, nor am I encountering any of the above mentioned problems!
Now I can play StarCraft without having to boot into XP!

Great , yes this project should be supported more by the linux community, because the only one advantage of windows is the number of games written for it, for me sine i switched completely to Linux i'm using wine to run some programs and i bought the cedega 2 weeks ago for better game support .
Regards.Linux is not only an operating system, it's a philosophy.

Wine is really impressive these days. I wouldn't say the same about Cedega though. I think it's a scam. They charge a subscription for something that often times doesn't work as well as vanilla wine. It really only has the Point2Play GUI but that is sparse on feedback and so it's entirely possible to launch a game twice by accident. It seems that much of Cedega consists of hacks and patches for particular games which in my opinion is a flawed approach.
Anyway all props to Wine!

I just built my new system last night...it's an Intel Quad core,2GB RAM and an nVidia 8600GT OC. So first thing I did was fire up Half Life 2 under Cedega. It performed pretty poorly, at least as slow as my P4 2.4GHz. Funnily enough Tremulous and Wolfenstein:ET are now turned up to full graphics settnigs at 1280x1024 and are flying along...on top of Compiz.
I too will give it another try. I think I'll game more on my new rig. But I also heard of a new Wine gui that looks very promising. I'll be experimenting a lot with the new hardware indeed...
