I know its getting somewhere but I was really hoping the fps lost wouldn't be that much in source games.
Either way, this is going on my new Netbook very soon.
A game that is designed to run 100% on Windows will definitely take a performance hit. Because Wine does not run DX9 very well (which is what source uses) the performance hit is pretty big. Anything over 60FPS is really good for Wine. Also, I tried Wine before trying CrossOver Games and the framerate was horrible. Talking about 20-30fps. In CrossOver Games I hit 200+ FPS but get an average of about 80-100 or so.
