Great idea. I have wondered for a while why I haven't seen a net cafe in
Ireland using Linux - it makes a lot of sense in that environment...
Would Linux begginer classes be an option? Cover Windows equivalents and
basic command line use..? You could get a loyal customer base with a
unique service like that.
Don't forget those games with native support like the UT and Quake
series. BTW, on the topic of WineX, if anyone has any tips on getting
GTA3 to work I would be happy to hear them...
