LXer: Windows gaming on Linux desktops gets a boost

Published at LXer:

If you want to play Windows games on your Linux desktop, you'll be glad to learn that Transgaming Technologies has enhanced its enabling software. Cedega version 5.1 adds support for three popular Windows games -- Civilization IV, FIFA 06, and Need for Speed -- among other enhancements. Cedega, formerly called WineX, is a semi-proprietary program that sprang from the Wine project. Wine, in turn, is an open source program that enables some Windows programs to run on Linux. Unlike Wine, which supports general Windows programs, Cedega is designed expressly for running Windows games. In particular, it's meant to enable DirectX and other Windows graphics-heavy programs to run on Linux.
