Three simple things that sound great together: Linux, Guild Wars 2, and success. Lensor over at GWOnline.net was able to get Guild Wars 2 running stably in a Linux environment using Wine 1.5.3. The hitch?
Then I took a closer look at things I know are a little iffy when playing Guild Wars 1 through Wine. After all Guild Wars 2 is based on the same engine, so it might suffer from the same issues right? Much to my delight even those were nonexistent.
Nothing! While Lensor says that his results may not be typical, the game itself ran just as well as it would have had he been using a Windows machine. Sounds like great news for all you Linux-heads out there.
