Guys, why are we even discussing on Pirated S/W.

If his OS is pirated then no candy for him.
And brace urselves from discussing on that topic...

If the conversation on Pirated s/w continues, I'm going to report this thread.
Sorry rhiwick
<TO ALL>ppl stop discussing benifits of piracy...
lets make this thread sticky and discuss why its wrong <or we can just talk abt virus probs in win 7>

but linux is not the right platform for games...
developers themselves dont even jump to games for linux category

Counter Strike, Urban Terror, Quake Series etc are few games which are available for Linux. By using WINE you can run most of the windows games under linux.

So is the problem solved , win32 heur also called as virut 56 is very dangerous virus and wont go with regular anti virus software like avg or kaspersky . It affects all the exe files and makes your system unstable . It also uses your net connection to spread spam !!
I was also infected by this virus through limewire and even formatting and reinstalling windows xp didnt solve the problem since other partitions also got infected . To remove this you must download the virut removal tool , Dr webs cure it , super anti spyware remover and run them all one by one in safe mode without connecting to the net .
Check in the task manager if there are any funny programs running like reader_s.exe etc , if yes then you would have to download and run some other virut removal tools .

whats WINE and how can we make windows game work on linux through it

Hey I've installed Wine in Fedora. Buy how to use it???

Plz suggest.


WINE(Wine Is Not an Emulator) is a software which can run windows programs/games under Linux OS. After installing WINE, install your favourite windows app under WINE & then you can run it under Linux OS.

You can refer the official site for more information : http://www.winehq.org/
Check out the application database for the games/apps currently supported by WINE.

There is also a paid option known as Cedega : http://www.transgaming.com/business/cedega/6.0/

Cedega can be also used to run windows games under linux but the software is paid.

WINE is in fact the emulator (although its name says its not :D ) for all exe files in linux. I find that apps meant for windows dont run too well when run with wine. Its worth a try, but I would not rely on it too much if I were you.

yeah same here
pirated or genuine we have access to XP,Vista and even 7 now then why use linux and get stuck with WINE

can we get a step by step info about how to use wine???

I've wine installed.....!! But dont know how to use it....!!

Now just double click to begin with the installer & install the game. Once installed start the game will start from WINE.

Read the FAQ for further info : http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#head-f3515230c198befe0279d32c448d9c8da63be66f

@krow - Read the following.

Myth 1: "Wine is slow because it is an emulator"
Some people mean by that that Wine must emulate each processor instruction of the Windows application. This is plain wrong. As Wine's name says: "Wine Is Not an Emulator": Wine does not emulate the Intel x86 processor. It will thus not be as slow as Wabi which, since it is not running on a x86 Intel processor, also has to emulate the processor. Windows applications that do not make system calls will run just as fast as on Windows (no more no less).

Some people argue that since Wine introduces an extra layer above the system a Windows application will run slowly. It is true that, in theory, Windows applications that run in Wine or are recompiled with Winelib will not be able to achieve the same performance as native Unix applications. But that's theory. In practice you will find that a well written Windows application can beat a badly written Unix application at any time. The efficiency of the algorithms used by the application will have a greater impact on its performance than Wine.

Also, and that's what people are usually interested in, the combination Wine+Unix may be more efficient that Windows. Just as before it's just how good/bad their respective algorithms are. Now to be frank, performance is not yet a Wine priority. Getting more applications to actually work in Wine is much more important right now. For instance most benchmarks do not work yet in Wine and getting them to work at all should obviously have a higher priority than getting them to perform well.

But for those applications that do work and from a purely subjective point of view, performance is good. There is no obvious performance loss, except for some slow graphics due to unoptimized Wine code and X11 driver translation performance loss (which can be a problem sometimes, though).

Those are just some applications provided as examples/test applications. Don't worry if they don't open as you won't be using them anyway. I didn't experience such problem though.
