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 http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iAppId=1922 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.
