My daughter introduced me to the original Guild Wars - Prophecies. I went on to get all the Guild Wars expansions and then got the Collector's Edition of Guild Wars 2 during pre-release. I also have the Thorns expansion now.
I used to play in a Linus/Wine environment which was usable but has become less so. I did that because Linux is relatively immune to mal-ware and because I can multi-task with Linux. Wine now often triggers an 'assert' in the game that will terminate the game per-maturely. (Yes, there is a long open wine bug report on the problem.)
I would be interested in talking to people who have been able to run Guild Wars 2 on 'virtual machines'. In fact, I would be interested in running with almost anybody at this point...
This last year and a quarter has been hazardous; two very traumatic hospital stays.
All my characters have "Maximus" as their last name.

I am not entirely happy with the presentation of geographic and crafting information. As a result, I will try to construct better alternatives.
