19. Re: No XP support means no Linux support with WINE. Sep 4, 2012, 19:45 DangerDog

One negative side effect of killing off XP support in games is that they won't run under Linux with WINE either because WINE doesn't yet support the DirectX10 & 11 API's.

Getting Direct3D10 & 11 functions translated to OpenGL in Linux is certainly possible, but then again the same could also be done via OpenGL in XP.

I'm all for geeks doing their thing to make Linux a better OS but attempting to get Windows games to run properly on it seems like a pipe dream.
