I hear that cedega can get world of warcraft working just fine using d3d or opengl, but I've only seen discussion on it in ubuntu forums. I dislike ubuntu because of all the crap it comes with when you install it, and frankly I'm just more comfortable with gentoo and portage. I'd use freebsd, but its difficult at times to get linux apps, especially onces that are performing black magic, to work properly, and I want to avoid alot of hassle. If anyone has it running and running well, let me know of your experience and any pointers or reasons why not to bother. I'm really REALLY sick of having to use windows just because devs for games that I enjoy the most have rocks up their collective asses about porting. I'm thinking it shouldn't be to difficult since Blizzard has a port of WoW for mac os x that gets the same data as the pc versions (they play on the same servers and get the updates at the same time).

Oh yes, if you got it running under wine (so i don't have to bother with those winex vatos) I'd much appreciated for those accoutns aswell.
