    So I discovered this site when browsing randomly and it looks like a good idea. Could be a saviour for games that just won't run in Linux, through official port/native or in wine.

    I'm waiting a bit to test it until they get servers closer to me.

    I sighed up, looks to be a while 60 days and it seem to cost 40 to 50cents an hour... bit of added expense there so insure I'll ever use it. Thanks Aryandaar

    Seems this is everyone's answer to compatibility. Strikes me as just another way to extort extract sell us something.

    How is running a game on someone else's Windows machine better than running it on your own?

    Yeah, why not just stream it from your Windows box using Steam?

    I definitely don't have fast enough internet to stream high definition gaming and can't afford the service.

    In many ways, Linux gaming has been the poor-man's attempt at high quality gaming for less.

    Almost all of my guides are from games I've purchased during sales, already owned or free-to-play. I've spent a fraction of $$ that most gamers spend on their "just released" $60 games. An d I have used existing or old hardware to build gaming machines with my free Linux Mint installed on it.

    As you can see, my focus is on poor-man's gaming which requires more time and frustration than money.

    Yeah, and it's not exactly viable to pay 50 cents to 1 dollar for gaming for one hour when gamers tend to game quite a bit...

    I realize that my excitement for this project was pre-mature.
