    "If you aren't running Ubuntu, you'll have to compile it from source yourself, but then again, if you aren't running Ubuntu, you probably know your way around Linux fairly well in the first place. Most games run as well on Linux architecture as they do on Windows. Dolphin is a fairly mature emulator so most of the bugs have been ironed out really. My Wii died on me after a year and half and I didn't want to fork out another $80 for a used one, so this did well."

    "If you thought you would never again be able to play Castlevania or Street Fighter 2, think again. ZSNES is an emulator for Super Nintendo that makes these games and many more easily playable again. My only complaint, and it's a mild one, is that the emulator doesn't work for Mac."
