Professional Linux geek here. World of Warcraft is actually one of the best-supported Wine apps around -- apparently there's some crossover between Wine devs and WoW players. Given that it works so well under Wine, Blizz probably sees little reason to release an official Linux port, since basically everyone who wants to play WoW under Linux is already doing it. Plus, having released an official Linux port, Blizz would then be responsible for supporting it, under many different Linux distros, versions, drivers, and hardware, and they can hardly be blamed for not wanting to deal with that.

As opposed to supporting Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and all the versions (service packs, hotfixes), drivers and hardware among them? You're making it sound like Blizzard should take control of a distribution's support. They don't need to be that involved.
