Recently, we have found that Linux users can play online poker too. As many Linux users may already have found out, the usual Windows .exe files are not compatible with Linux. However, a few online poker rooms have java-based no-download poker clients in which Linux can be used to play. The only necessary component is an internet browser that has java installed.
The Linux compatible poker rooms include PacificPoker, PokerRoom, and EuroPoker. Of these three, there are really only two. PokerRoom and EuroPoker are on the same network, while PacificPoker is part of Cassava Enterprises, who also owns 888 Casino on Net, which is also Linux compatible.
