    The GUI on Crossover products was always very ugly (they used a very old Linux graphical toolkit or something ??) ... its good to see they are working on a new GUI.

    DirectX 10 support sounds nice but they should be working on better DirectX 9 support since some games perform really slowly.

    No actually they should spend some time implementing direct3d to Gallium, so we can get fast native direct3d support in linux :P Then we would see some big wine improvements in the direct3d front?

    Personally I would like to see DirectX 9 support worked on more. I'm running a Q6600, 8800GT, 4gb ram setup, and DX9 barely works for me. I've edited the registry to useGLSL and enabled other tweaks, but playing a game like TF2 is still not possible.

    Codeweavers employs the big wine developers. If you benefit from wine, you should buy their product, even if you won't use it. But you will end up using it, because it does make somethings much simpler.
    I have a lame duck copy, and will hopefully buy a copy when the license runs out.

    After my success running Darkfall (my favorite game at the moment) I will definitely be renewing my license when it runs out. As far as I'm concerned this project is doing great things... games used to be the only reason I boot into Windows at home, but now I don't have to at all.
