OK, thanks. I'll be going through and trying to get that setup tonight I think. I have a gentoo system installed with the latest 1.6 version of wine installed. I have a working version of Eve Online and Star Trek Online. Steam client for Windows is also installed and working where the only Valve title I own is HL2. Which works perfectly. Eve works very good except for some frame drops occurring during the process of going to warp or coming out of warp. Star Trek is got some performance issues, but otherwise plays very well. HL2 performance is damn good.

According to the report made these games should all work with these d3d9 patches. I'm very interested to try it out.

Wine implements 74% of the Windows API.
Only 2% of d3d11 though.

many bigger games are already releasing d3d11-only.
But that's not a direct reason, is it? I mean, it's just another feature like "If the platform supports dx11 then use it, if not use whatever wine has". A direct reason would be that it'd be too much work maintaining all this.

Skyrim at least should work fine with vanilla wine. I can't speak for Supreme Commander, though.
