Description:

This is just my Windows desktop I use when I need to do something in Windows that I am unable to do in Linux... Namely, whenever I need to do my gaming. Yes, I know about WineX, but nothing beats PC gaming if you are using Windows. Unfortunately. Yeah.

Ever since I found out how to actually install SuperKaramba, I've departed from Object Desktop.

w00t! *goes to play BF1942*

I wonder if there is a way to play that natively in Linux...

I totally agree, however I'm perfectly content with the amount of games available for Linux. I personally have Descent3, SimCity 3000, Tactical Ops, NeverWinter Nights, Karting Race, and Unreal Tournament 2003, all for Linux, not to mention all the tons of quality Free/open-source games available. Some of my favorite Free games include Frozen Bubble, Ksirtet, and Celestia (if you can consider it a game; totally awesome nonetheless).

Linux gaming is becoming more and more viable as development companies and distributors realize the potential. Savage, for instance, is yet another game that is going to ship with Linux support. UT2k3 shipped with Windows and Linux versions, but not Mac, reflecting Linux's new place as the second most used OS, displacing Mac.

Of course, despite my skills, and my collection of games, I don't really consider myself a "gamer". I don't really *need* that hot new game as soon as comes on the shelf, so my occassional "cravings" are more than satisfied. My mother, on the other hand, is totally addicted to one game in particular (although she's spending less and less time with it), namely "The Sims". She has a Mandrake 9.1/Win98 dual-boot system, and I have her Mandrake desktop completely tweaked (Karamba, Slicker, custom X cursors), but I have done absolutely nothing with the Win desktop. The background is the default dull green, and cluttered with default icons from installations she never bothers to remove. I've noticed this subtle difference actually aids in her departure from Winblows.

Anyhow, in summary, Linux gaming is alive, and continues to improve, and in the mean time, if you'd like to break your addictions, try making your Win desktop less attractive to remind yourself that you're not there to have fun... just to play games ;)
