As a predominant DirectX 9 gamer, I've been looking through the Wine HQ, and am quite surprised. Nearly all of my favourite games work! I just recently even installed Gutterball Golden Pin Bowling, no hiccups.
But as a whole, how efficient is Wine for games, and the future of open source Unix gaming? It seems that majority of DX 9 titles, least the ones I like are fine. DirectX 10.x too with patches, depending on popularity.
What our your guy's thoughts on the matter? I'd really like to hear some opinions. I'm a previous OS X user, so I know how painful Wine compatibility wrappers can be. Typically, I only use it for some old software and games.
In the end, I leave my gaming to Gamecube/Wii/360 most of the time. But I do a lot of earlier 2k's stuff on my computer.
