Hey all,
[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#141414]As other Linux experts here, you probably know just like me that information about Linux games (and software for that matter) is all over the place.

We have :

      [apps.ubuntu.com](https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/)
      [database.gamingonlinux.com](http://database.gamingonlinux.com/)
      [openbenchmarking.org](http://openbenchmarking.org/)
      [appdb.winehq.org](http://appdb.winehq.org/)
      [ubuntuforums.org](http://ubuntuforums.org/)

And maybe even more that I don't know about.
That's just insane and a big headache for new users just wanting to know how well TF2 is going to run on their pc. Or how to get Photoshop working on there pc.

Right now they have to hunt for this in forums or the wine AppDB where it isn't clear where or not the instructions still work.

What I'm really asking do any of you already know of something like this?
If not it might be a pretty cool idea to drive some traffic to GOL.

Maybe even cross link news from some sites and link to Desura/steam/gameolith to make it into one coherent page.
For the influx of new users coming when steam is released some time next year it will be very handy to see in one go if and how to get their favorite game/app working.
