    Im sorry that i dont believe that, Amazon said a couple of weeks ago that CIV V will be out for linux on 22nd of october ...
    (dont get me wrong i really would love to believe and it is still possible since blizzard said they will publish a game this year on linux
    but still i want to see it happen first )

    Thankfully WoW works extremely well via WINE. I've been running it using CrossOver for years now, with nary an issue. The few minor issues I did encounter, the CrossOver tech support folks were fantastic in getting them resolved fast.

    But yes, a native client would be most welcome. Between Steam and Wow, that covers a huge audience, and would hopefully encourage other A-list developers to produce Linux builds.

    Default Windows 95 ?

    I hate to burst your bubble here but it also lists Windows 95 and I'm a bit skeptical about that one

    Putting WoW on Linux would certainly bring me back as a subscriber. If it got on Steam/SteamOS, it would be a boon for Valve not to mention Blizzard.

    It would certainly helps the transition over to Linux for a lot of people. I know I would be concerned about using WoW on Linux. Even though it does work perfectly fine with WINE.

    Thumbs down

    As usual it's a mistake.
    Amazon also still claims CivilizationV to be compatible:
