Yes support for popular games is probably one of the biggest
disadvantage for linux on home computers.

I had the impression that WoW was quit well supported under wine and
looking at is see that
the rating for WoW is Gold and Platinum so it should be possible to
play it but with some issues depending on your hardware. I don't play
WoW but Warcraft 3 and Dota and it works fine except a annoying bug
that I don't see all writings in chat.
