CodeWeavers Launches CrossOver Games 9.0 for Linux and Mac


CXGames 9.0 - Hands on Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Back on October of last year I did a 
| comparison of Cedega and CXGames. As of 
| yesterday Codeweavers launched their CXGames 
| 9.0. If we had heard any news or updates from 
| Cedega in the last five months this would be 
| an updated comparison, but since Cedega has 
| not changed I simply am going to be reviewing 
| the newly released CXGames.


Running Windows games on Linux gets easier

| One constant complaint about the Linux 
| desktop is that it doesn't have enough games. 
| That's actually not true. Linux has plenty of 
| games. What these people usually mean is that 
| it doesn't have their favorite Windows games. 
| Now that's changing.
| Granted, Linux has never been a big gaming 
| platform. Some have suggested that it might 
| be a good idea for vendors to work on making 
| Linux a gaming platform for its own high-end 
| games, but little has come of this idea. Of 
| course, it's always been possible to run many 
| popular Windows games on Linux. I play Guild 
| Wars, a Windows-based MMORPG (Massively 
| multi-player online role-playing game), 
| competitively in player vs. player mode on 
| Linux all the time.



Full Steam ahead with CrossOver Games 9.0 beta

| Software guys are often accused of wanting to
| spend too much time polishing their beloved
| programs. I'm very guilty of that myself, and
| that's doubly hard because of our work on
| Wine. While Wine is amazing, it's not
| perfect, so there is a challenging balance in
| deciding that we've made enough progress to
| justify a release. Of course, if you let us
| software guys decide, we'll take forever and
| never ship anything.


Review: Crossover Games (Linux) 8.1.3

,----[ Quote ]
| In this review Crossover Games 8.1.3 will be
| pitted and benchmarked against Wine 1.1.33
| using Everest Ultimate Edition benchmarking
| utilities (don't ask me why I use it.  I just
| happen to have it conveniently on hand.)

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
