C'mon, you guys are just trolling.

My machine is :

2400 Athlon 2G
256 memory
Suse Linux 9.0
Radeon 9200 with the ATI Linux drivers.
40G harddrive -- dual boot, 2 Windows shares, and four Linux file systems.

I put UT2004 on a 19G linux filesystem.

Im new to UT so I'm doing the single player games -- two on one fighting.   To 
me, it's excellent.  I compare it with Halo -- which I found to be a dog once 
the action and fighting started.   In fact the Linux UT2004 moves so fast 
it's hard to keep my wits about me.

In theory, since the Linux and Windows version come on the same DVD I could do 
a comparison with Windows .
