For me, performance has been pretty horrible:Intel Core2 Quad8GB RAMNvidia 8800GTDistros tested:OpenSuse 10.3, Ubuntu 7.10, PCLinuxOS, Mandrivia, Debian, RedHat 8, Sabayon-Framerates are consistently 10-50 fps lower than their windows counterparts.-When you exit the game, you have to sit there for ~90 seconds waiting for access to your desktop again.-Rotating the camera around your character causes the framerate to plummet to near single digit levels.-Sound delays are atrocious (hit a mob, and hear the sound of the impact almost a full second later)-Mouse cursor is inaccurate (doesn't always click exactly where the tip of the arrow is.And that doesn't even cover trying to get other various issues with wine cleared up or the 32bit vs 64 bit cpu problems or some of the texturing bugs in the Nvidia video drivers.That might be good for some people, but why should I settle for that when I can just boot into XP and get flawless performance and a consistent HIGH framerate (60+ fps)?Maybe it's a tweaking issue, but I haven't been able to find any acceptable solutions to these problems so I've pretty much given up on WoW under Wine for right now.
