Thanks. Have been thinking about installing Linux for a while butt was a little concerned about not running the Win programs I use, butt now it’s no worries.
crossover doesn't run everything... be sure to check the compatibility charts on the site (which is back now that the download offer is up)
I tried a few games - Test Drive Unlimited, and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter and managed to not get either to work... they are not on the working list anyway, but I haven't played either in ages since I switched from windows... both are well over a year old, in fact there's a GRAW2... so I thought there might be a hope that they may work. I also tried a trial WoW cd, but it also didn't work... I knew it wouldn't as the format is a bit wierd... linux seems to read the MAC format of the disk, and can't access the windows installer... I read about it somewhere, but I didn't bother past that. TDU did install completely, but the issue was with the DRM CD check... I have a valid/legit key, but it wouldn't accept/validate it... I read somewhere installing a No-cd crack would fix that... and the game does work...
