For what it's worth, WoW does work fine under Cedega (typical ATI Linux 
driver issues aside)

But seriously, I've been running Cedega on the x86_64 version of Ubuntu 
Hoary for the last 3 months. It took a day or two to work out some 
problems, but it runs smoothly. No crashes, just a mouse targeting bug 
in WoW that doesn't show the target circle. Mind you, I only use it for 
WoW and occasionally for Warcraft 3. The only other game I ever play is 
NWN which runs natively on Linux.

I had problems getting regular Wine to work on x86_64. I've heard that 
Wine works with WoW, but I have no specifics like is it a 32bit 
distribution of Linux or 64bit. I would have prefered to use Wine, but 
such is life.

Anyway, it's nice to be free from dual booting. I have been since moving 
to x86_64 last year.
