Blue’s News is reporting that MandrakeSoft andTransGaming are teaming up to sell a Mandrake Linux Gamer Edition, which will include a port of the The Sims (at least, I’m assuming it’s a port, and not based on WINE), and a packaged version of WineX for end-users. Hopefully whatever build they include will run more titles than the CVS snapshots I’ve tried :/.
Anyway, what do you guys think? Is this a viable way to get gamers on to Linux? I’d prefer real ports, but for impatient people who’ll just get the Win32 version and dual-boot, maybe this is the best option.
