            iTunes?

            Anyone that follow WINE closely know how close they're getting to iTunes support? There's been more than a few people that were great candidates for Linux but for iTunes and dual booting or virtualization just wouldn't work.

              Who would buy CrossOver when you have Wine? I mean you can't even get CSMT with CrossOver.

                Primarily Mac OS users who value the ease of installation and commercial support.

                    A whole bunch of WINE's core developers are on CodeWeavers's payroll, including Stephan D?singer, the developer of the CSMT work. If you're a regular WINE user, buying a CrossOver license is a good way to support WINE development - even if you continue to use WINE instead. Yes, WINE accepts donations and I'm sure can both use and appreciates them, but paying for your rent and your meals - iow, paying a salary - requires a volume and an organizational structure that the non-profits behind even big FOSS projects usually do not have. Your comment is along the lines of "you'd have to be dumb", but financially supporting work you directly benefit from is a smart thing to do.
