Hi Alex,

The best way to do this would be to create your own apt repository on one of
your machines / servers. So that server will update itself from the ubuntu
apt repository, and your other machines will update from that one.

I've never done this on ubuntu, but I have on fedora using yum. It wasn't
that complicated. If you google, you'll fine some useful blogs and howto's.

Wine is pretty good, but you're probably going to have to dual boot windows
to be able to play most games. unfortunately.
