« on: January 26, 2011, 08:28:41 am »
Can any of the visual novels run on linux?

I mean this may be a noob question but ehh I thought I'ld ask you guys.

I've read some posts about it on /jp/, so you should look into that.

There is a reason we use windows, I don't think any japanese VNs run on linux natively, wapanese fan made novels are another matter though.

Their quality is another matter too.

Actually I have used games from here with WINE and Cedega.
From when I had tried Linux last week... Gotta say I'm liking it a lot more than windows.

But for the few games that don't work.... I had Linux installed alongside XP LOL.
And trust me it don't matter with 2TB hard disk at my disposal.

I got a trauma thanks to an Ubuntu Server with Nagios that I had to setup, so I prefer to stay away from Linux.

If they made Linux a little more user friendly I think it would be better....

As it stands now it's too much clutter... but I like to navigate new things so ehh.
