At the risk of exposing myself (to ridicule)

Yup, I happen to play a couple of MMORPG's.  But that's not the worst, I have 
to confess to playing them on XP.  (forgive me, for I have sinned...)

The world famous EQ (EverQuest, or more popularly known as EverCrack 'cos of 
its addiction factor) is supposed to run with 'minor problems' under WineX 
(recently renamed to Cedega) a quick look around their website 
http://www.transgaming.com should provide you with some more details.

As for which one is 'good to go for' it depends what genre you want to play.  
EQ is a 'fantasy' type setting, whereas Star Wars Galaxies is Sci-Fi 
(surprise, surprise).  Hours of entertainment to be had for all.  Just 
remember there's a real world out there too...

Oh and playing more than one of these wonderfully entertaining games can have 
an adverse affect on your bank balance.
