CrossOver 9.1 Is Based Upon Wine 1.2 Goodness

Wine 1.2 was released earlier this month with more than 23,000 changes since the release of Wine 1.0 some two years ago. This stable update to this major free software project is impressive and many more Windows applications now have life under Linux and other Unix-like operating systems. CodeWeavers, which is the primary corporate backer of the open-source Wine project, has now released CrossOver (Office) 9.1 and CrossOver Games 9.1 to their customers.
