Hello, I wanted to ask about an operating system to run the game on. I currently am running Windows xp pro and am unhappy with it, I have looked into Windows 7 and the price made me look elsewere. I wanted to ask if you can run this game on Linux 64 bit version, and if so which version is best, I was looking at Ubuntu, but I'm just not sure, I have read were some say that some games will not play on Linux systems and I want the game to run smoothly, with the graphic settings high. I know it would probably be smarter to buy Windows 7 but I can't afford it and just wanted to know if any of you are running Linux based systems.

linux dont use directX, but maybe if you have the program crossover ffxiv might work but you will need a beefy PC, doubt wine will work.

In all likely hood if you can't pay 70-80 for windows 7 upgrade then your computer can't run it on high smoothly.

You cant upgrade windows xp to 7, only clean install and the clean install disk costs over £100 in UK, idk what it is in US.

And for OP ffxiv only runs on xp SP 3, vista or 7
