    CrossOver has application-specific hacks and copy protection support bolted onto Wine, which you pay for. GameTree offers the same (they think) at no cost. The catch here is that Wine and CrossOver are in much better shape than Cedega and GameTree.

      And that the CrossOver developers contribute their work back to Wine (which is open source).

        That's better than a annual-subscription program without good support from its developers, which is what I think Cedega was before this announcement.

          It's quite the opposite. Wine and Crossover Games now support Windows games much better.

            That's not the opposite.
