Basically: If you have the CD in the drive(or are properly online activated,
etc), the game starts. If you don't, it doesn't. Ie, the DRM finds the
environment it expects from Windows and behaves like it does on Windows.

For an example how this might look, see 10273. SafeDisc does some statistical
tests on the API, which we can satisfy with quite a bit of work and the right
compiler. PunkBuster checks if the API code is byte-for-byte equal to the
Windows implementation, which we cannot satisfy(next to impossible technically,
would violate Microsoft copyright).
