I guess that's where we differ then. If someone came to a Linux forum asking for help with Cygwin, I would hope people would be helpful. Sure there are a lot of jerks out there in the Linux community, but I think for the most part people try to help eachother out. Personally, I use all three (Linux, Mac, and Windows). I have a Mac at work, I use Linux mostly for my personal programming projects at home, and I use Windows for entertainment purposes (games, movies, etc.) and some windows specific development (C# is actually a pretty fun language). I don't play Diablo 3 on Linux, but I think it's a shame that those who do are mistakenly being flagged as cheaters.
maybe there was a miscommunication on my part earlier.
i have no problem with linux. i have no problem with people gaming while running linux. if this were a tech support forum, i would have no problem with someone asking for help getting something running using wine.
i think that warden should be able to differentiate (and so does blizz, from past experience) between wine and 3rd party bad software.
but when there is a breakdown in warden, or wine, or wherever the mix up happened, then it isnt really appropriate to bring it to a general forum, where the people who could fix it never hang out.
if blizz decides to fix the issue, great!
if they decide not to fix it, then the people affected should have a 1 time account ban lift, and be told to use it only on windows or mac pcs from there on out, and the ToS should be changed to reflect that.
