Will World of Warcraft run on linux?
 
Just wondering. Couldn't find a solid answer on this quesiton when searching around. I might be getting another system to play with here and I wanted to load linux up on it (not sure what flavor of linux..). And i was wondering what major games does linux support under the various window emulators? I know I've seen Half-Life 2 support, but nothing about WoW.

Also.. hows the gaming performance?

This has a database of what works with cedega. WOW does work on linux using cedega some people have claimed that they get better fps with linux than Windows I personally doubt that.

It's certainly possible, and it wouldn't be the first game where thats happened.

Remember that WINE isn't an emulator (nor a simulator or a wrapper either.) Rather what it does is provide posix functionality for the missing windows API hooks for whatever programs you run.

Yes, I currently play WoW under Linux (FC2 with custom 2.6.11.6 kernel). It runs slower than under windows, but saves me a reboot to play. Oh and I use cedega to do it.

Question tho..all of the screen shots show WoW and HL2 in window mode. Are you able to go full screen, or adjust the size it takes on the screen?

Thanks again!
