CX Games has Wine code in it. In fact, Codeweavers are the major contributors to the Wine project. So you purchase this product, you are helping the main Wine developers. One of the many advantages of Crossover Games is that it allows for multiple bottles/installs of drive_c and the installation of software is a lot easier to deal with. Plus it has other nice features such as reboot emulation, etc. The support is second to none. It runs perfect with GTA series and Dawn of War series. It appears to run even faster than regular Wine.
DX 9 is fully supported as well.

I don't work for them or anything. Just a very satisfied Codeweavers customer.
