Yes , it's game-oriented if there is such a term.

It is freely available by cvs.
Go to:http://www.transgaming.com/license.php?source=1
and you will find directions on how to download it
Packages (rpm, deb, tgz binaries) require a very small fee (about $5 per month).

Of course from cvs you will get source code and you will have to compile it yourself...

Everything! (just a joke)

From the page (just below the link you clicked on)

To checkout a new CVS respository:

1. cvs -dserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot login
2. When prompted for the password enter "cvs"
3. cvs -z3 -dserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot co winex

So go to to an empty dir in your pc and ran those commands.
In case you dont have cvs , reach for your install disks/location and install it.
It's definetely there somewhere.

Good Luck.

Replace those with \:\p (but without the slashes)

or check it out again in the page!

or show your support and pay the $5 a month. Then you get WineX and the front end Point2Play.

Click download, and then pick the rpm you want
Or.. if you have Gentoo, just do
emerge wine
And it'll do it all for you
Wine is like Winex, in my opinion they are preety much euqal when it comes to games, and wine is much better with applications

There is no where to go

Open a terminal
Type the commands as that you saw on that page. That is
$#] cvs -d \:\pserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot login
When prompted for the password enter "cvs"
$#] cvs -z3 -d \:\pserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot co winex

You will probably see the files been downloaded to your dir
After that hust follow instructions in readme files ....
