Using Linux for MMOs

MMORPG.com Correspondent Emmett Hendrick writes this interesting look at the options that are available for players who may choose to do their MMO gaming through Linux rather than Windows.

We all play MMOs, thats why we come here. We like to read up on what’s new in the industry, to see what next great update is coming for our favourite title and to chat to like minded people about MMOs in general. Online gaming is a big market and one which many people enjoy. If you run a Windows based machine it's likely you'll not run into many problems getting your game to run (as long as your hardware meets the requirements and excluding some major game play stopping bugs).

But what if you don't run Windows? What if you are part of a growing community who, for various different reasons, don't have or don't want a copy of Windows? In the PC arena many of these people run a variety of Linux (and there are many varieties) so what options do people who run Linux have to join the wide MMO community and get online with like minded folks to beat Orcs, travel the Galaxy or try to emulate there favourite super hero in beating down the (virtual) denziens of society?
