Posted on/at 3:35 PM by Sparky

I know a lot of people who will not use LINUX since they think they can't play WINDOZ games with LINUX, well here is a simple solution for Ubuntu that works with most games. be sure you have the latest version of wine installed and you should be able to play most games that work on windoz.

For anyone newbies put the red text in your terminal.
