I play world of tanks (a Game) in windows. Will it work on ubuntu? Better, worse, same? I would like to try Ubuntu but not if w.o.t won't work.

Best Answer

World of Tanks is available for Windows only as I see on the Website. But there are possibilities to run Windows software on Linux.

Wine

Wine is a program that allows you to install and use Windows programs. It's not perfect, but there is a database where you can see whether the program worked according to other people. This link was already posted in the comments of your question: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=11544

As you can see the newest versions of the game are rated in "GOLD", the game should run fine. Details can also be found in this database.

Since Wine is a bit complicated to new or inexperienced users, I recommend using Wine via
Crossover (http://www.codeweavers.com/products/)
or PlayOnLinux(Free, downloadable in Software Center).

These programs will use Wine to run windows software, but offer an easier interface. You can also try using Wine without this software. Just look for "Wine" in the Ubuntu Software Center.

Please keep in mind, that even with this database, and even if I would try it out for you, there is no guarantee that it will work on your specific hardware. It's not a native solution, but a workaround. It's GOLD rating looks promising, through.
