Linux After years of being relegated to server racks and the desktops of ultrageeks, Linux is finally making some headway as a viable alternative to Windows on the consumer desktop. That's the optimistic message delivered by a newly energized contingent of Linux proponents. By employing the same consumer-friendly marketing techniques practiced by Microsoft, and by taking advantage of the rising popularity of web-based applications, Linux vendors are getting ready for what they say will be a wave of consumer interest in the free operating system.

the people that were using linux and got banned, were also using hacks. there were some people who got banned because of just using linux, but blizzard fixed that and reinstated their accounts.

i have been playing wow with linux for a bit more than a year, even said i was using linux on blizzards site. blizzard doesn't really care what os you are running on. they are probably glad they just dont have to make a linux version lol. though i wish they would.
