LXer: Windows vs. Linux vs. OS X: CIO John Halamka Tests Ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 1, 2007
Published at LXer:
Last summer, CareGroup CIO John Halamka began looking for a viable alternative to the Microsoft Windows desktop operating system. After 16 years using Windows, he had enough of its instability and the countless updates that automatically installed themselves on his computer—often at inopportune times, like when he was in the middle of a presentation. As CIO of a health-care organization and affiliated medical school with 40,000 employees and 9 million patient records, Halamka has to be sure that the computers in the hospital, its administrative offices and medical school are secure, stable and easy to use.

can't get age of empires II to run right on wine
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 7, 2011
Hey, I've used wine to run a couple programs before, though I think I actually had problems both times. There must be something I just don't know to do.
I'm trying to install one of my favorite games, Age of Empires II using Wine on Ubuntu 10.04. I have Wine version 1.2.2, and a fully up to date (I think) version of 10.04 LTS.
I remember that the .exe files wine used had to be set to be executable (is this just the "chmod +x" command for regular Ubuntu?), so I set the aoesetup.exe to that and ran it using Wine. It went through the entire graphic installation wizard and said that it installed everything correctly - Microsoft Games AoK was added to the program files list in the Wine menu in applications. I also checked the permissions (executable flag) on all the .exe files in the program directory, they had already been set.
When I try to start up the program though it immediately pops up with this message:
"The program empires2.exe has encountered a serious proble

TCP/IP Awkwardness with Diablo II in Ubuntu 8.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 30, 2009
I'm not really sure whether I should classify this as a games question or a networking question, so apologies if this is in the wrong place.
Recently, I've been trying to get Diablo II to work under Wine 1.0 on an acer TravelMate 2410 running Ubuntu 8.04. For the most part, things work out fine, but I've been having difficulty getting network play over TCP/IP to work. There are two primary problems that I've noticed: the first is that the game displays an incorrect IP address(it's neither my wireless LAN IP or my internet IP) and I am unable to join games.
I can host games just fine, and other players can connect over the LAN using the correct IP address, but any time I attempt to connect to a game, Diablo II hangs while displaying the "please wait" message. This happens any time I try to connect to an IP address that a machine on the network is actually using(whether that machine is hosting a game or not), but does not occur when I type in a random IP address(get th

Dear Mr. ...
Thank you for contacting the Customer SITECOM.
I understand from your e-mail that you are looking for drivers for Ubuntu 10.10.
Unfortunately, not a Linux operating system supported by Sitecom.
We have officially only drivers for our products for Windows and Mac OS.
Which does not mean your product will not work under Linux.
Possibly the product itself or recognized by Linux, the chipset driver solution.
This chipset driver is not offered by Belkin and is not supported.

This guide/walk through/how to/set of instructions is for a Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) user trying to install Diablo II using WINE, but I'm sure you could apply them to other Ubuntu flavors, or other Linux flavors for that matter. I've also used these steps for installing War Craft III too. With that, here it is...

From Windows to Linux II
location: linux.com - date: December 28, 2010
I tilted this thread "From Windows to Linux II" because my questions are very similar to the original "From Windows to Linux." I hope this is OK. I have read those replies but I still have some questions about the best way to make the change to Windows. This is my situation:
I'm currently running Windows Vista Home Premium in 4 GB of RAM, an AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X 2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ 2.00 Ghz. I have 100 GB free in my C/ Drive, where Programs are installed, and only 1.36 GB left in my D (Recovery) Drive, where my documents are. The computer is a Gateway GT5220 with an nVIDIA GeForce 6150LE and a wireless card.
I use this computer to surf the Web, process video files, including the pesky .m2ts ones, do a lot of word processing in OpenOffice, and organize my photos. I burn DVD's with the video files. I also have an external USB Black Armor drive, and I use iTunes for my music. I have purchased several albums on iTunes and would like to be able to listen
