          My favorite fallacy involves anti-patent bile about mono, followed by the evagalism of WINE as an alternative.

            I don't care if Mono or Java are free of patents and available in every license in the world.
            They're still huge, slow, piles of crap.

              And when enough efforts are spent on it, so weak against patent trials...

                I tried OpenRA. It's really slow. Here's my system:

                16 GB RAM
                GTX 560 Ti
                Quad core i5-2500 @ 3.3 GHz
                Vertex 3 SSD
                1280x1024 screen

                So you'd expect it to be able to run at a decent lick. Nope, got around 20 fps. They're clearly doing something massively wrong.

                  Your CPU and GPU are weak for a gaming system. But we aren't exactly talking about a new game here.

                    I haven't found a game that isn't smooth on full settings; I'd hardly call that weak! And as you said, it's not exactly (or shouldn't be) the most graphically demanding game ever.
