Java stuffOkay sorry I'm not an expert on linux and what it can and can't run. I thought wine was just so you could run .exe's.
Well then don't make claims about stuff you know nothing about? Wine is so that you can run .exe's but java archives aren't exe's. .exe files are Windows executable files, and all the Minecraft.exe does is call java...As a matter of fact I have no idea why they even release an exe for Minecraft. You should be able to double click the minecraft.jar and run it that way. Every java application I've developed was launch-able, so there was no need for an exe wrapper.
But yeah...Java doesn't care what OS it's on, it's platform independent. Don't write linux off just yet. It's free, and the gaming is getting better and better each month. Once steam is out, there will finally be a free operating system that gamers can use without getting raped in the ass by Microsoft or having to illegally torrent stuff that should be free in the first place.

I guess find a tekkit server, get far as fuck away from everyone else as possible, and do shit.
Unless seed or squid want to try to set up a tekkit server?
I can try to look into it, my workload is just ridiculous though.
I'm in the process of interviewing with a company for a developer job, trying to keep the server up to date, updating 8 public plugin repositories of my own, all this not to mention just basic daily life stuff.
If I can get a breather to sit down and look at it, I'll consider doing it.
