    I heard If I want to run games on Wine I'd should to download Winex or Cedega, but the only I find is a Wine repository. So, I'm trying to do this with Wine on Mandriva. So, I've a question. What can I do to run PC games that needs DirectX ? I tried to install it but I can't. I don't know how is the next step ? Can someone help me please Thanks

    you can't install DirectX. you need to pay for cedega to use it, unless you are using the CVS which iirc doesn't have the DirectX libraries in it.
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?
