    How to install a game(Rise of Nations) or any other


    Hi, I am new to Linux. I recently acquired a desktop and since I have the newest Mac Book pro and installed vista on it I figured why not install Ubuntu on that desktop. I have to admit I was a linux hater but after a week of trying Ubuntu I have to say I was wrong for hating it. I am not going to switch over though I still love OSX and Vista. But Ubuntu is great though I did have trouble at the beginning tweaking it how I wanted it too. All right enough of my Ubuntu story, I installed wine but currently do not know how to use it. I want to install Rise of Nations, and I always here how great the Linux community is so please help me, give me more reasons to convince my friends to try Ubuntu as well. Thank you for your time.

    maybe installing wine can help you.

    I would recommend reading up on some of the documentation for WINE found here:

    Wine HQ

    They also have an applications database which will tell you what programs various people have tried to install and how much success they've had. Sometimes they offer helpful workarounds:
