This is a very noob question, and I am not sure if this has been discussed at all, but here is the deal:
I am a new Linux user, and am loving it so far. I am running Linux Mint 12 KDE, and dual booting Windows Vista on my main partition. I am looking to switch to Linux for good, and the only problem is that I do like to play games on my PC. This is one of the only reasons why I am keeping Windows on a partition, other than a select few programs.
My question is this: Is it possible to play games, such as battlefield, TF2, minecraft etc, on a Windows Virtual machine inside of Linux mint 12? And if so what is it like? Is it laggy at all? If I could do this, I would delete my Windows partition completely.
With that being said, and if it is possible to game on a Windows virtual machine, can I delete my Windows partition and allow Mint to have the rest of my hard drive space, while inside of Linux?
Thanks for any help, and I appreciate your responses.
