. Loaded steam via wine and benched lost coast with it, was getting 60fps which did not correspond to the jerkyness I was seeing on screen. Can wine go full screen? It is either in a windows (configured) or on the desktop which screws up the aspect ratio due to top menu and bottom bar making the mouse pointer do some funny stuff. Anyways still experimenting with it.
I agree having a separate dedicated machine doing linux is probably ideal since one can get the benefit of Windows and all the software available for it and Linux. So far Ubuntu has not been too hard to plow through, in fact allot of things are just plain easy with great support.
believe me when i say it - 9.10 was the ugly step child of ubuntu. what a train wreck that was. you will be very impressed and pleased with 10.04.
