This is a discussion on Poker and Linux - Is it possible? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; I've been using Peppermint OS on a barebones laptop and I have to say I'm very impressed with it. I've been a fan with Ubuntu
I've been using Peppermint OS on a barebones laptop and I have to say I'm very impressed with it. I've been a fan with Ubuntu and its equivalents, and would like it to be my main OS of choice over windows.
The only issue, is that poker and Linux don't really get along.
I know you have the browser-based sites, and Pokerstars appears to work well with WINE/PlayonLinux. But, does anybody put in the hours grinding solely on Linux?
Has anybody been able to get this software working, or know of any Linux compatible ones?
- Hand Tracking software (e.g PT4/HM2)
- Equity Calcs (e.g Pokerstove/Equilab)
Any advice would be helpful with this. Been scouring the web about this, but it still seems the best option is a dualboot with Windows and Linux, and that has its issues too

in a word, NO. I had to final reinstall windows. I even tried crossover but unless you know every dependency needed to install a program. It wont run. Had no luck with BCP or Ignition. WINE didnt even seem to help. None of the poker rooms run on Win XP anymore so thats one reason
