The needs of the one...

| Further, I discovered as I played the game, 
| that it's fun, and 'missions' is a better 
| game metaphore than 'quests', in my humble 
| opinion. That is, in World of Warcraft, I 
| always felt like I was a dog, and each quest 
| was an instruction to 'fetch'. And why on 
| earth does Lieutenant Farren Orinelle need 
| so many Merlock heads? But rescuing a 
| freighter seems like a legitimate thing to 
| do, and if you have to destroy a bunch of 
| Orion ships on the way, well that sort of 
| makes sense as well.
| So I'm hoping that my wife and I can play 
| this game for a while. But in order for that 
| to happen, I've got to have a release of 
| CrossOver to use to play it. So I put 
| together an unsupported build, and did some 
| basic testing, trying not to take anything 
| away from our efforts on 'Snow Mallard'. It 
| runs Company of Heroes more nicely, but 
| seems to cause trouble with Left 4 Dead 1 
| and 2.

Another Look at Wine for Running Windows Apps

| In my dressing down of Wine, I noted that
| users are unlikely to find Wine mentioned in
| their ISV's support matrices, but, as I
| learned, two of the most frequently-
| recommended MySQL query tools I encountered,
| PremiumSoft's Navicat Lite and the open source
| HeidiSQL, owe their Linux support to none
| other than the Wine project.
