Dumping that for XP pro (because of a few apps not available on linux).

But can I expect the same performance from a linux (Ubuntu or SuSe) installation ?

How do the 2 platforms compare ? Can I expect to go through some pain if I install EVE in the linux environment instead of the XP one ?

Or is it still the same "windows for games (EVE) and linux for the rest" ?

The easy answer is to read these forums. Obviously we are all managing to play in Linux, but then if you read the forums, you would know that already.

There will be a performance hit but nothing a good system could not handle
I'm currently running 2 clients at the same time with very decent performances (including PvP)

What are your machine's specs?

The installation is actually very good, i.e it is "point and click" ala windows without having to mess around with files etc.
The automatic update feature is nice as well. once the client is installed and working you are pretty much done

Give it a try really, nothing to lose. If you hit a snag post here and I'm sure people will help you out

The only downside I can see is that for some good (and not so good) reasons, the linux client comes second compared to the windows client
So bugs get fixed more slowly (WHEN they get fixed!) etc
