    Phoronix: WINE 1.1.22 Brings Few Graphics Improvements

    The developers behind WINE are out with their bi-weekly development update to this popular open-source project. Added in this latest WINE 1.1.22 release are improvements to OLE copy/paste functionality, the start of x86_64 exception handling support, Direct3D locking fixes, ARB shaders improvements, and better OpenGL pixel format support...

    It would be awesome if applications actually install without hacking WINE to hell and back.

      steam installs without any hack for example. imgburn only needs to be set to be aspi, lots of other tools work fine.

        Wine 1.1.22 detects the Radeon 4800 series out of the box now (does not count for 4300, 4500, 4600 series and probably more).

          But does it work as well as an Nvidia card is the question.

            It does, but for me it does look funny, and it's also really sluggish.

                As I understand it, it's not a case of Wine supporting ATI so much as it's a case of ATI supporting their drivers as well as NVidia supports theirs.

                People like to say that because PPRacer works great with their ATI card Wine should run Crysis just fine too.

                      Bingo! Wine isnt the only problem for ATI on linux. Not by a long shot.

                        I vote the next reincarnate be called Super Extreme Planet Penguin Tux Racer Reloaded VII to avoid confusion.

                          The wine experience with Nvidia cards is certainly much better than with ATI cards, i guess ATI never compares that. Maybe they can not afford a Nvidia card to compare

                            Interesting, it seems Wine developers are starting to file bugs/feature requests with Mesa:

                              Actually AMD stock has doubled in value over the last 3 months.
