AMD "This morning at the X Developer Summit in the United Kingdom, Matthew Tippett and John Bridgman of AMD have announced that they will be releasing their ATI GPU specifications without any Non-Disclosure Agreements needed by the developers! In other words, their GPU specifications will be given to developers in the open. Therefore you shouldn't need to worry about another R200 incident taking place. The 2D specifications will be released very soon and the 3D ones will follow shortly."

WoW does not run anywhere close to *fine* on Wine. It runs. It gives ok FPS. But thats it. WoW is the kind of game you need to run very stable (Disconnecting while fighting bosses on Mount Hyjal is not popular).
