Out of Steam? Wine draining away? Ubuntu's 64-bit-only x86 decision is causing migraines

Speed and ease of use - My laptop isn't a powerhouse, and the overhead of running Virtualbox and a whole another OS on top of everything makes some of those games run too slowly (or even not at all). I guess there are solutions and fixes to that (like buying a new computer...), but nothing beats the ease of use of just starting a program like if it was native.

Yes, I am aware that this argument is lost to the "new & shiny" crowd, for whom both myself and my favorite games are just leftover junk from primitive times, holding them back in their pursuit of even more "new" and even more "shiny". I'm truly sorry, I'm doing my best to not get much older... :-p
