right now i'm using v&h with wine on an ubuntu derivative. it's working quite fine, even tho i had to reinstall the sac (with the latest v&h update) and to change some preferences (i just had no time to update arcadiens automatic wine installer on playonlinux.com). i'm looking forward to see how pypy will work out. and yes, i'm totally with you. i really would like to see a native linux version of villagers and heroes.
