    I want to know if I could run "Garena" in LINUX to play and also run Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne with my friends online.

    My system specs:
    AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition 3.10GHZ
    768mb RAM


    What Linux distro should I use?
    I only browse the internet, chat, play movies, download torrents, use MS Office and Play Warcraft III thru Garena.

    I tried Linux before... but I don't get this whole .deb,sudo,repository,terminal things.

    No idea about Garena, wouldn't bet on it either. Warcraft III by itself should work with the latest stable (not beta) version of Wine.

    Go for Ubuntu or Mint. You'll be using OpenOffice instead of MS Office, but you should be fine. Give it a run: burn it to CD or USB and try to install it, and ask something more specific when you run into problems.

    And why the hell do you only have 768MB RAM on a Phenom II?

    I would say at this stage, its better for you to stick to Windows.

    For the games, or the attitude (quadrapassel is far superior to any windows based game) :) :)
