Maybe with Wine
Oh, and furthermore, Steam is to be released on Linux quite soon. I found a beta release that seems to be somewhat functional already. As far as I hear, the ETA for release is a couple months.
Your statement is preposterous, but I suppose since you can't spend 5 minutes researching how to forward a port, I guess you also couldn't be bothered to research running games on Linux before ignorantly posting "Linux doesn't play games" - The most ironic part being that Minecraft is Java and will run on any OS Java supports, being any OS I can even think of.
To make matters worse, suggesting Wine to run minecraft is probably the dumbest thing I've heard in a long time. Linux natively supports Java. That's like running a virtual machine through another virtual machine which would not only tank performance, but be an incredible waste of time. You might as well set up a VirtualBox, install Windows on it, install java in the virtual OS, and play minecraft that way. That's basically what you just suggested.
Not to sound like an asshole, but really, that makes absolutely no sense.
