I use: Mandrake Linux 9.2, Windows 98 SE and Windows XP Professional. I use windows for games, and Linux for school-work and programming.
But sometimes i play DD on Linux.
One of the cool things about Linux is, that the most of the software is free, and can be downloaded from the internet. The bad thing about Linux is that it dont have DirectX, that many games requires. Therefore i use windows for games.
(i'm using Linux in this moment)

Does any play DD on linux or do all use Microsucks Windoze?




I play it on Linux, because i'm too lazy to reboot only for my few games

Out of curiosity, what program are you using to go between Windows and Linux (Lindows?)




besides the mentioned VMWare and Wine, you could also use WineX (www.transgaming.com) - it's a Wine with extended DirectX-Support and (in the commercial version) support of diverse copy-protections. So you could say its a special wine-version for games.

You could compile also WineX for free, from the CVS-source - only the copy-protection-hacks and the Point2Play-Application is not included there.

I would you only inform that my homepage has been moved. The new location is http://www.xanlosch.de and the description "Divinity on Linux" can be found here. A few improvements have be done but a smaller part must been done

When the next Wine release is out i will post a short description for the -Demo on Linux.

sounds very interesting.....

is it hard to learn....?




Depends on the version of linux, I think. Certain versions are very user friendly, like mandriva, and some are more advanced.

Interesting. "Advanced" as an Euphemism for "not user friendly".

I just thought i'd say that it is cool to see other people playing on 'nix

I personally use Ubuntu, Hardy release, playing (English CD plus lastest patch) through Wine from the winehq repository. I have configured it manually with all the dll files suggested by Xan as not all of them are available from the wine config gui tool. didn't work without those dll files for me \:\( The other configurations specific to I've had to do is: "use as windows 98", emulate a desktop at 1024x1280, disallow window decoration, disable Direct 3D, and select basic under Direct Sound. Those not using Wine 1.1.10 may not have a clue what the above refers to!

I can't get to work on my Windows XP partition as it crashes every 21 1/2 minutes to the second so for me linux as Ubuntu with Wine means I get to play

Why does it crash on xp ? I'm running on windows 7 64; and before that xp without issues. I tried running it under wine but my linux box has a rather poor graphics video subsystem and it didn't run very well.
