Draeker Responds to TransGaming

Loki's Scott Draeker gave his response to TransGaming's efforts to get Windows games to run in Linux under WINE. Here's a snip:
The reason people use Linux is not because it's a great way to run Windows software. If you want Windows software then you should be running Windows. Our customers use Linux to run Linux software.
Although Draeker obviously has a vested interest, I have to agree with him. I use Linux because I got sick of Win98 and wasn't going to go to XP no matter what. Now, I'd love to get Diablo II going in Linux. If a port is impossible, TransGaming's solution may have merit. However a native port that can take advantage of Linux's strengths will always be preferable. Thanks Linux Games.
