    Apparently will WINE be better at running games than Parallels?

    Not sure. If they get it truly working, maybe. But I think it's not exactly a perfect solution. I've not properly used it though - anyone?

    from what I've heard about it it will definitely be used for gaming- isn't it (well the Linux version anyways) what Linux users use to run many of their Windows games?

    As for better than parallels... I don't see why not. It probably will be slightly slower than dual-booting, but supposedly not much.

    I've been running Steam and Counter-Strike: Source on my Macbook just fine!

    sweet I'm way optimistic... that way I can run the windows stuff without having to worry about booting up windows.
