Petition to run Guild Wars 2 with wine

Current or prospective subscribers of Guild Wars 2 using the GNU/Linux system would like ArenaNet to consider partnering with the Wine project.

Interoperability with GNU/Linux and other POSIX-compliant systems will be very much appreciated and beneficial to all. To remain partisan by making Guild Wars 2 officially available for Windows NT variant and OS X users only is not a fair practice to your subscribers.

It is also clear that ArenaNet’s release of Guild Wars 2 on OS X would not have been possible without the good people of the Wine project’s [unpaid] efforts, considering TransGaming’s Cider’s origins are of Wine itself, established when its license was more permissive. As such, your customer base has increased thanks to these efforts and will continue to increase if you comply with what has been suggested.
