Post CrossOver Games for BSD

Anyone here interested in CodeWeavers CrossOver Games for FreeBSD ?

CodeWeavers postes a poll to see how many users were/are willing to pay for a BSD version of it. (It costs about €37 if I'm correct)

To be honest, not sure "how much better" it is than a 'bare' Wine install.

I've been meaning to try the trial but never got around to it, even setup an Ubuntu install to test t he linux version as well.


If the thing would actually work *well*, I'd pay for it lol.

I tried the trial, 5 minutes and 10 crashes later I concluded that it's even worse than wine.

As for my opinion, stick with WINE, it gets better and better these days as 1.0 release (currently 1.0-RC2) for WINE after long 15 years of the probject is aproaching.

For sure wine development has been strongly progressing. I remember using it about 7 years ago when I first was getting into the non-Windows world and it was pretty much useless. Even notepad would crash. Now I can run Steam and all my favorite games through it.
