What operating system will you be playing Starbound on?

    If you're running Chrubuntu, then it's probably safe to assume your on a Chromebook in which case I highly doubt you'll be able to run Starbound through wine unless you have upgraded the SSD & the RAM in it. Even then I would bet you'll have a hard time with the CPU. And as someone else stated, programs like Wine do have their limits and usually can't run new programs.

    As a Windows 8 user, I must ask why you don't like Windows 8? Have & for how long have you used it for? Did you know it operates faster then Windows 7 and the only real difference between Windows 7 & 8 is the start button & menu, everything else is practically the same.

    Windows 7. Win 8 isn't that great... IMO

    It's tile-based. I loath that about it. Sure, it works well on a phone. But not on a PC. I like my PC GUI in lists, not tiles. I even heard Bill Gates has said he doesn't like Windows 8, but the source of that information isn't very trustworthy.

    Only the start menu is 'tile' based, aka metro themed, and oddly enough, there are loads of mods out there to give back the Win7 start menu to Win8 users. So with the performance upgrade Windows 8 has over 7 and the metro theme being your only reason for not liking something you have clearly never used and probably never even looked into after seeing screen shots of the start menu, I think you should reconsider your reasoning.

    Why the hell would you need to run Starbound over Wine?

    I use Win7 x64 on both my desktop and laptop PCs. (In the case of the laptop, it was preinstalled at purchase.)

    HOWEVER.

    When I get a dedicated server running for my WoW guild (got a few in there who are already big Terraria fans and are looking forward to Starbound) I'll be hosting that on a Linux box, or a rented VPS in a datacenter somewhere. (Again, Linux-based)
