If you compare the game market now compared to the early days of PC games, we have a tremendous amount of variety and we now have sizeable modding communities that greatly extend the life o...

Windows games can be played with Linux. I'm not knowledgable about the how-tos but I know people who have it and play their favorite windows games. If I decide to go Linux I'm not worried as I have plenty of people who are experienced with it to help me. :) I am well aware that at some point I may ...

I do have a couple questions right off (since I never saw this in other scenarios) can you require some temple be built (city level) then require it be destroyed before the scenario ends - or will the win triggers get confused?

Hmmm, I'd worry about what changes it would make to my system and what it would leave behind if I changed my mind. Even if they could completely isolate it from my XP isntall and all the things I have on my current system, the performance you get from such a install would probably be low. What I am...
