Question Question Question What's the best Linux distribution to use for running games that are normally run on Windows operating systems? Can any tech gurus around help me? I'm really in a bind here....

My first choice would be Windows :p Wink

Else, you could look for Linspire with the point2play stuff... It's a distro with cedega (transgaming) already installed. But you have to know that transgaming's cedega is not free. You probably won't be able to find something working right out of the box for all your windows game working on linux for free.

good luck

This is true...Codega is only 5 a month..but the developers have tweaked it to play hundreds if not thousands of the most sought after M$ games...

However remember that it still might take some signifigant tweaking/hacking to get it running properly..but you will definitely enjoy the results

We wrote a review of Cedega at http://www.linuxlinks.com/portal/news/staticpages/index.php?page=20050306045044463 which may be of interest to the OP.
