Windows emulators

Which of the two Windows emulators is best: WinE or Cedega?? I've heard good things about both, but I don't know which one is worth tinkering with.

The program I'm most concerned with is MTGO (Magic Online). As a merchant on there, it's sort of critical that I have access to it .

I have 4 ways to run win apps on this PC. Primarily these days I use codeweavers crossover ($40) for win apps and it's about the best wine version for normal apps. I use winex/cedega ($15) for win games and it works well for that. I can also run a couple of things on wine, tho I tend to use crossover now as it's easier. I can also run win98se on win4lin (more expensive) which will run most win apps, but I only use that if the app won't work in crossover, which is rare now.

You can check the compatibility page at codeweavers to see if the apps you want to use is listed - and they have a free 30 day trial download to try and see if the app will work.

The only windows software I run is games really, so I just paid for Transgaming (Cedega). I would recommend it if you just game. But I've never tried Crossover Office

props to vmware... i can do everything but games and I think it is really a good idea if you have a lot of ram to spare...

it's really cool, the only annoying thing is the 'boot up' is kind of annoying but XP boots pretty quick anyway.
