Question Crossover plugin.

Has anyone had any luck with the Crossover plugin yet?
I installed the demo version yesterday and had mixed results.

I only installed the Quicktime plugin, basically it's just the Windows Quicktime installer in a Wine jacket.
Some QT movies didn't play, some did, the ones that did already played with mplayer.
There's this highly annoying splash screen that reminds you to buy the plugin like every 15 seconds, you can't make it go away and it blocks your image completely ....

Plus since I installed the Crossover plugin, when surfing to some websites my pc would sometimes hang for 10-15 seconds .
I ran "Top" and saw that in these cases Wine and pluginserver were consuming 95% of my cpu cycles and a lot of memory.

I uninstalled and everything is back to normal now (thank god there's an uninstall shell script provided with it).

Just curious if any of you had better results?

In general CX Plugin was used mainly for QuickTime. Now mplayer can do them too (also via wine note) it's not needed much anymore.

I've had good results with CrossOver Office, which is wine made easy/easier.
