MaTi, you can try some tweaks. The for-windows-games indeed will not be so
fast (for now maybe, ;D), but you can, for example, disable compiz effects
while play, use a ligthweight window manager so certain resources consumed
by gnome will be free for use in games.

usually i setup a fluxbox in order to play, there's no icons or lots of
things available inside a desktop, but his lack of resources can help when
you go play.

also fluxbox menu can easliny edited and prepared to launch any game!

> Wine version: 1.1.10
> Ubuntu version: 8.10 with all the updates

> Half-LIfe 2 (steam) - only 5-7 fps
> GTA San Andreas - when many NPC's appear on screen it's getting laggy. When
