My question is if it is possible to use a linux distro for gaming, oldschool games (2002 and down) with about the same FPS and smoothness as Windows OS through wine. I'm on XP 32bit now but I've tried Ubuntu and I'm really comfortable with it. Reason why I want to switch to Linux from Windows is mostly because I prioritize security highly, and want to work more with hacking and learning the Linux OS system.
I got an Acer Extensa 5620. The sorts of game I'm gonna play is Morrowind, Diablo 2, DOSbox games like DOOM and Keen. Also... if anyone knows if there's an NES emulator to linux it would be great! (Sorry if my english grammar turns out to be poor, it's not my native language
