Last week:

42 of the Best Commercial Linux Games

,----[ Quote ]
| Are there many high quality commercial games available for Linux? That's one
| of the frequently asked questions we receive in our mailbox every week.
|
| It is true to say that the number of commercial games released for Linux each
| year remains small compared to other platforms. Nevertheless, we faced lots
| of difficult choices compiling a list of 42 of the best commercial Linux
| games. The selection we have finally chosen covers a wide range of different
| game genres, so hopefully there will be something here that will interest
| all.
|
| To be eligible for inclusion in this list each game needed to be:
|
| * Released under a proprietary license with a fee required either to purchase
| * the game, or a monthly charge
| * Not require Wine to run. Wine is a compatibility layer for running Windows
| * software

The making of Wine (how to make Windows apps merrier with Linux)

,----[ Quote ]
| Enterprises badly want alternatives to
| Windows. Desktop Linux has come a long way since 1999, too. and (who knew?)
| the Mac has become the ultra chic, must-have PC. The enterprise has its
| alternatives - if it can only get those mission critical Windows apps to work
| flawlessly. Wine, in its commercial form, has been doing so for years.
|
| So, in 2008, the 1.0 version will hit the streets and the timing could not be
| more perfect. White admits that not every Windows application will work
| flawlessly on Wine, but many a critical one for the enterprise has been
| specifically optimized.
