but you have to pay for windows in the first place so its not really a fair comparison.

btw, winex is free, but its not as complete as cedega is.

Correction, you are SUPPOSED to pay for windows.

I'll have to check wine out. If i can get half life 2 and sims 2 up, i wouldn't have a use for windows.
