    Phoronix: Cedega To Be Replaced By GameTree Linux Software

    Here's something interesting, but all of the details are not yet known at this time as the official announcement doesn't seem to have been issued yet. TransGaming, the company behind the Cedega software for running Windows games on Linux, is going to be replacing the Cedega Gaming Service with something now called GameTree Linux...

    That's not the opposite.

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

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

    I think Crossover had more to do with that with their Crossover product for games.

    Considering the sorry state of Cedega's Eve Online port, that was far worse than Wine running the Windows version, even though Cedega got paid for that mess, I'm not sure there's enough life left to Cedega for it to be able to die.
