    Phoronix: CodeWeavers Brings WoW Cataclysm To Linux

    For those into the World of Worldcraft computer game, which lacks a Linux client at this time, the Cataclysm expansion pack was released over the night. Fortunately, for those not wanting to use Microsoft Windows to play this popular MMORPG, CodeWeavers is out with CrossOver Games 9.2.1, which brings WoW: Cataclysm support to Mac OS X and Linux gamers...

    Now available on Linux; wasting your life! Instant addiction for losers, on your desktop! Click that animal. Click it again! now 2 billion new quests, made with our award winning Randumb Quest Generator 2! Each time you'll level up slower so you can benifit from our rich subscription based netcode servers with 1MB storage of data per luser. Yeah; that $25/month is needed to get our servers going.

    So what are you waiting for? Get it now!

      Strange, I was playing WoW under vanilla wine something like 4 years ago (it stopped having any interest at all soon after the first expansion). Has anything changed in between, to need a specific version of crossover ?

          Actually the BBC aired a documentary last night about video game addiction. Guess which game was mentioned most.

                Why would you write a News about Codewavers supporting WOW without even mentioning Wine?!

                Are you paid for this or what?!

                  The story was about Crossover 9.2.1; why should he need to mention Wine?

                  BTW, the CodeWeavers guys contribute the most code to Wine - so it's a good thing for them to get their own product mentioned once in a while, if you like Wine.

                    Jeah sure. I have nothing against the codewaver guys. It's just that thier code is reling totaly on wine so it's wierd not to mention wine.

                      It's pretty rude to label world of warshit a game, in light of all the classics.

                      I once was addicted to games, when my only challange and joy/fantasy was my Playstation. And what else could I do? At that time I was young. I biggest challange that I ever got was 1098-7859. And my potential 'friends' were doing... er... trying to recreate the Titanic in the form of a hut with insufficient wood. The obvious reply I got was "Stop trying to know everything better than anyone else!", untill they ran out of wood @20% after a year and a half, but hey...

                      Oh they ended up building houses... from concrete...

                        And, who do you think is creating Wine? The project lead for Wine, Alexandre Julliard, works full-time for Codeweavers. There are most certainly other people/companies contributing to Wine, but take a look at the git logs to see where all the DirectX and many many other contributions come from.

                        Insisting that Wine get mentioned when the story is about the CrossOver product is like insisting every Enterprise RedHat story must mention Fedora. It's just rude to the people who create both and are trying to make a living on the for-pay/supported version while also giving you the free version.

                          It's funny how this article mentions that Crossover brings WoW Cataclysm to OSX as well, since there's a native OSX client for WoW

                          On another note, Cata is just great
                          I haven't seen a login queue on our server for ages, but last night I had 1200+ people ahead of me and had to wait 45 minutes to get into the game. A guildy who tried to login 30 minutes later had to wait almost 2 hours.

                          WoW is back in full effect, in 4 hours I replaced most my epics with greens already

                              Wine is open-source, so where's the problem?
