How can I run my windows applications in Linux?
I want CS:Condition Zero in linux.
U can use emulators such as cross overoffice , Vmware workstation , Wine etc., Crossover office is available as 30 day trial with Xandros Open circulation edition.
For more Info :
I dont think the CS is released for Linux...
Also , Wine is free i guess but not that good as VMWare...
Use VMware - tis the best in switchng OSes...
Wine is the best when it supports the application that u run because wine can run it at almost full speed (as wine is not a emulator). But, while vmware can emulate and hence can run everything, it runs things atleast 50% slower with no acceleration whatsoever.
Most probably winex (not free) supports all the popular games. And with a lesser probablity, wine supports it. Do check out this:
you can use winex, a special version of wine meant for wining Games
@tanush: If you can spare about $5 a month, you can get yourself a subscription to Cedega, from TransGaming, which is simply the best way to play games designed for Windows on your Linux machine. It supports nearly every game made for Windows, doesn't show any noticeable performance drop and configuration is down to a minumum, not to mention that games are supported nearly instantaneously after their release. Get more information at transgaming.org
yeps, Cedega is the way to go.
I was spellbound at the recent Suse Linux 9.2 Games demo at Novell, with native Windows games like Q3, Unreal, CS, giving much better performance while running on Linux, mostly because it uses OpenGL api instead of Direct3d
Does Wine allow us to play games ?
i prefer wine
but one question
can i play linux games in windows (sounds silly though)
i want the asnwer coz i wanna play quake 3 which is in linux in windows to play
then what is wine after all?
WINE is the retronym for "Wine Is Not an Emulator".
Get Cedega for Playing Windows Games on linux and as far as it comes to CS u can install it using Wine it self i have done it and so i know
