Iv been considering the leap to linux for a while, but i am also a keep gamer.
Iv played around with VMware but its slow and i want to take the full step.

What are the issues with gaming capabilities on Linux and is it worth just dual booting.

Im currently running XP
Cheers

Mambo

WINE runs most games but recent ones with strong security refuse to work.

if the primary use for it will be gaming then you shouldnt bother changing as XP despite its flaws is still the best gaming OS (dont even mention Vista)

there are plenty of emulators available for linux, and if you really want to run some modern, gfx-intensive games in linux, try cedega (like wine, but developed specifically for gaming).

Btw, many of the unreal tournament games come with linux installers, just run the install.sh script that is on the cd/dvd.

maybe duel boot or you could just mess about with a live cd version like knoppix.
Alternatively if you have an old unused computer kicking around then use that.
