linux + crossover = windows over linux ...works pretty darn good ...and any lunix distro will do ..about ubuntu ..wait for the 7.04 version ..it comes with CNR (click n run ) service ..people who are familiar with linspire wud have heard of CNR ..its probably the easiest way to install apps in linux ..actually..it even beats windows in simplicity ..
if u cant wait ..get freespire (free version of linspire) ..the CNR service is now free ..and freespire looks and feels good ..
and for games ..i use transgaming's Cedega ..emulates DirectX in linux ...can play most of the good games for windows in linux
