First of all, I am not interested in actually playing the games while running Linux. Read on :)
I dual boot Ubuntu and Windows 10. I spend the majority of my time in Linux but keep Windows around only for gaming. And since I live in a rural area with very slow internet speeds, I would like to have Steam download my Windows games while I'm using linux.
It would be such a waste of time to boot up Windows just to keep it there for 14 hours, downloading a game while I can't do any of my normal computing tasks.
I know this might be possible by installing the Windows Steam client and running with Wine (and then copying the files to my Windows partition, but wondered if there might be a more elegant solution?
Has this been done before and does anyone have any suggestions?
