I use wine, its not so good. Very slow, resource hungry , anyway i never tried playing games with wine. But for other windows applications, its reaaaly slow.!

you can't play games with wine because it doesn't have a linux "directx equivelent", which winex does. Thats why you have to pay for it because they have to update it when micorosoft updates directx.
