I'll think about your statement while I play Mass Effect 2,and other game/application you care to mention except Crysis(bah!), on Linux. Take a look at the AppDatabase sometime.
I've done that. I tried playing Modern Warfare 2 and all objects in the game are a bright white light lol. I've messed with gaming in Linux in the past, most of which have been major disappointments when it comes to graphical quality and performance. WINE just isn't there yet but I hope they get there one day!
