I'm a newbie in using Ubuntu. I have wubi right now.

I know the basics, but I don't know if I can install Windows online games (such as League of Legends) on Ubuntu and use them without problems.

Can anyone help me with this?

  • This should be possible with WINE. however, running Ubuntu using Wubi causes a performance hit, so programs don't run quite as well, this is usually a minor issue, but could get worse when trying to run games. WINE can cause a slight performance hit as well, again usually not noticeable, but add the two together and you may find that performance is poor.

  • dual boot is always a better choice if you want to game with your computer and in windows.
