Asked By 80 points N/A Posted on -

Game Drift Linux is also popular when it comes to running Windows games on Linux. It is said that the above mentioned software runs over 1200 Windows games. But the games are about 3 years old. Is there a way to revive Game Drift Linux so that it will run the new games.

Game Drift Linux; How it supports???



Windows and Linux – both are completely different platforms. You can’t play Windows games on Linux because of their different architecture. Via simulation, only old games with less enhancement is available for playing, but all modern games aren’t. Game Drift Linux is most likely discontinued, and so it isn’t supported.

Windows games are developed using DirectX, a gaming platform for Windows, developed by Microsoft for smooth playing. In Linux, you can simulate a Windows environment where those games can be run. However, the development of DirectX is going on and the modern games are highly dependent on it. Linux can’t provide the performance of gaming that Windows provides and so it lags behind.

Game Drift Linux does the same thing. It simulates a small Windows environment where games can be run. But the latest update has been made in 2011, with the support of the oldest games.

It doesn’t matter how much Linux developers work; games made for Windows is only available for Windows in full performance and support. No Linux can take over Windows, as about 90% users of the world are involved in Windows.
