    Boot into Linux, download and install Portal, pray, play Portal at <1fps until it crashes due to missing or incomplete drivers.

    You're right, and we need the specific drivers for it too.

    Ah, yep, you're right. Forgot about that. In that case, you could always boot up the new Nintendo DS emulator and run Smealum's Portal homebrew remake.

    ASDS is fun. There are a couple of fairly major glitches which make speedrunning it fun too.
