I have tried UT2004 on three different distros, with different results.  On 
Debian, it did not run well at all.  My Debian system had the filesystem 
spread across 3 or 4 partitions (ext3).  I then installed Linspire 4.x on the 
same system and the game ran better than it did on Win98SE.  I then tried 
Xandros on the same system and the game runs better than it did in Debian but 
not as well as it ran on Linspire.

Xandros and Linspire both install reiserfs by default.  I don't know if this 
has something to do with the results I experienced.

I don't want to install Linspire because although I think it is a great distro 
for people who are new to Linux, it has disadvantages for people who want to 
install software that is not included with Linspire.  I had trouble getting 
libraries for Linspire so I could compile software without breaking the 

So what distros are people using with UT2004 and how does your game run, 
better than in Windows/XP or not?
