Windows gaming in Linux with WineX 2.0
TomsHardware.com has the review. One criticism from the review: WineX offers Windows games at half the speed. "The great thing about WineX is that it is still fairly new, and just like Linux, it keeps getting better. Support for DirectX 8 will continue to improve and the kernel module should give a noticeable performance boost when it arrives. Since you can try WineX for as little $15 (the cost of a 3-month subscription), I recommend it to anyone that is already running Linux. Go ahead and download the precompiled binaries and give it a test drive."
