Hey man. Disregard my previous post. I saw your linux mint 9 RC video and I installed that instead. AND STEAM WORKS!
Again, you rock dude.

Osgui, your video inspired me to install linux mint 8 helana on my system, I even deleted my windows load. I love your video.
I followed your steps and have my wine doors installed with most of the components you listed ( excluding a few apps and games) however I’m unable to run steam at all. Could you make a video covering steam more in depth?
You rock!

@acuteawareness wine is OK, but I use winex which seems a tad more complete and I can play major games in it like City of Heroes, Star Wars Galaxies, most of the Call of Duty (and Steam), Battlefield titles, etc but the downside is punkbuster won’t work. However certain programs does have trouble under Linux no matter what version Wine or whatever, like Blackberry’s DM or iTunes, etc.

As long as games work I’m happy.

I have one big comment seems to be a secret how do you get normal gamepad to work with linux like I have GF G60301A controll but is useless right now

The games that require DirectX normally run with Wine-doors?
And the games that have GameGuard protection, I can run using Wine-doors?
Very good your video!

@acuteawareness lol ok

I think Adobe is charging $600 for a Photoshop CS4 key. I’ll sell you one for $300.

I think I’ve tried the whole dozen and none can compete with mp3tag, but I’ll keep looking.

I think I have seen a dozen MP3 tag editors for Linux
really non of them r good?

acuteawareness Says:

I’ve yet to find a Windows program that runs flawlessly under Wine. Most are quite buggy. However, they run fine on an XP virtual machine in VMware Player. There’s really only one Windows program I can’t live without and that’s Mp3Tag. There are no good tag editors for Linux.
