If you like these products it's recommended that you *buy* them rather than warez them. Why? These companies contribute to open source development. CodeWeavers in particular sends nearly all of its work back to regular WineHQ.

There are other reasons. It's the moral thing to do.

And finally, believe it or not CodeWeavers and TransGaming employees do read these forums. For instance, I work for CodeWeavers on CrossOver Office. If you think it's professional why not help pay my wages so I can continue working on it full time, hmm?

He edited the bit about how he got it from a "friend" out. Lame.

yeah, i actually purchased cedega and thought its was worth say 15 bucks...

although that may be a lot for some, if you are playing games or what have you, you should be able to afford that much.

or at least CVS cedega instead of leeching it....
