Play Windows games on a Linux PC

The gaming service StreamMyGame does exactly what its name suggests and lets you stream games stored on one computer to another.

Cleverly, it will also let you play a Windows- only game on a Linux system. You just need to install the Server software on the Windows PC, and the Linux Player on the other one.

The free version of StreamMyGame (with adverts) limits you to playing at a maximum resolution of 640×480 pixels, but you can upgrade to a premium account for $9.99 (about £6.17) per year.

So, go ahead install linux, a virus free operating system and play your favorite games which were not there before.

    Wow, never heard about game-streaming. I will test the free version, but for 10$ a year chances are good I’ll upgrade as soon as possible if I like what I’m seeing.

    Below is a small sampling of the games that run under CrossOver. CrossOver allows you to install many popular Windows games on your Mac or Linux PC. Your games integrate seamlessly on your machine; just click and run. No rebooting, no switching to a virtual machine, and no Windows Operating System license required.

    I’m a real fan of linux, and one of the reasons me and other people are not moving to Linux completely is because there are a lot of games and
    software which runs primarily on windows. If there will be some engine like Stream my game that can emulate windows games on linux,
    Microsoft is in a big trouble!
