    Yes, if and only if there's a Windows port. Look on each game's download page to find out.

    Or just use a Linux livecd to run these games...

    Windows cannot run Linux binaries, just like Linux cannot (directly) run Windows binaries. There is a compatibility layer for Linux to run Windows binaries (wine), but it isn't complete, and there's nothing similar that I know of for running Linux programs on Windows.

    Haven't heard of cygwin?
    And last I heard, as qt4 is available for windows, we might even be able to run KDE on windows, along with X11. Reason to do that: unknown

    Anyway, great list! but icculus.org appeared thrice... Thats funny.

    Won't help. From their site:

    What Isn't Cygwin?
    • Cygwin is not a way to run native linux apps on Windows. You have to rebuild your application from source if you want it to run on Windows.
    Wine, on the other hand, will let you run (some) native Windows apps on Linux, without a recompile. There is nothing that I know of that will load a binary file compiled for Linux, into memory on a Windows box and let it run. Including Cygwin.

    And last I heard, as qt4 is available for windows,
    Doesn't help. All Qt-using Linux programs will still have to be recompiled with a compiler targeting Windows (either cygwin's Windows-native gcc, or mingw's cross-gcc that runs on Linux but compiles Windows binaries). The Windows Qt port is a set of DLLs, while Linux binaries will be looking for .so files. (There's a huge set of other problems too, though.)

    And of course a recompile is not all that's required -- you also need to either run it under Cygwin (which means you need to use Cygwin's compiler), or you need to change the program (and all libraries!) so that they don't use Unix-style paths. You will also need to fix issues stemming from Linux's case sensitivity in file and path names (files and paths are not case-sensitive on Windows). (Actually I'm not even sure Cygwin fixes that last one...)

    we might even be able to run KDE on windows, along with X11. Reason to do that: unknown
    Cygwin has its own X server, which is useful if you have a putty session forwarding your X connection to a Linux box. But it's really, really slow over anything but a LAN.

    And KDE very likely won't work properly. Kioslaves, for one, are going to be very problematic on Windows.

    thanks mrBen, I'll be checking that out when I get home tonight. I've been looking for another FPS since Americas Army dropped support for Linux and Mac.
    Check out my ebay auction for my signature space on JLC.

    Hey if people can sell advertising space on thier bodies, I figure I can make $.02 on my signature space.

    I have Mr Ben to blame for getting me into Tremulous... (was a Quake 3 mod but now stand alone)

    I have to go through this list and weed out the dead links and add new ones...

    JamminJoeyB, ya but the amazing thing is that Linux and Mac support for America's Army was dropped a while ago but Ryan wouldn't let it die and started making the ports for free (he didn't get paid to do it). I always keep an eye on what Ryan is working on, expecially since he's got a lot of input with the ut2007 engine

    Although lately he's been more focused with Mac projects...

    Maybe we could get him interested in PS3 stuff too!

    Well, I finally got all that FlightGear nonsense up and running on my x86_64 cross-lfs box. Talk about a pain... But man if this flight sim isn't complete. I known next to nothing about airplanes, so I can barely stay in the sky.

    "There's a big difference between "copy" and "use". It's exatcly the same
    issue whether it's music or code. You can't re-distribute other peoples
    music (becuase it's _their_ copyright), but they shouldn't put limits on
    how you personally _use_ it (because it's _your_ life)."
