Keeping up with Wine

I thought I'd take a minute to go a little more in depth on our recent announcement of 'experimental' builds of CrossOver.It is a very exciting time for Wine - we've been making great strides on our way to Wine 1.0, and I'm thrilled with that progress. But sometimes we struggle with the success and progress of Wine. We'll get customers that come to us and say "CrossOver stinks, Wine runs my application much better." And what can be deeply frustrating is that often Wine will run their application because of our work. This has long been a struggle for us; while we do a lot of the active development on Wine, we take a lot of time to refine that and polish it so that it works reliably before we ship a CrossOver release. Sometimes that makes people…

How the fun and Games started

Today we shipped CrossOver Games. I am very excited by this change; I have enjoyed computer games all of my life, and I like the idea that we can help others enjoy their new computers fully. I'm also tickled by the story of how CrossOver Games came to be, and thought I would share it with you all. We have long focused on productivity applications. Now, last year we did officially add support for games, and we made a few hires so that we could more directly support all of the great work being done in Wine on games. But, truthfully, our core focus has been on productivity applications such as Microsoft Office and Quicken. So go back to last fall and early this winter. We're hard at work on the back breaking work of fixing Office 2007, Outlook, and…

Roadmap for 2008

I'd like to explain how we decide what to work on next and share our plans for 2008. First, the big picture: the goal is to finish Wine so that it is a perfect reimplementation of the Windows API, thereby runing nearly all Windows applications flawlessly. That is a huge challenge; it's going to take a while yet. And since I continue to miss the right Powerball numbers, we continue to bring out new releases of CrossOver to bring polished, if incomplete, versions of Wine to our customers. The idea is that we bring you joy with Wine as we work towards the ultimate goal, and that in gratitude, you buy CrossOver so we can buy food, mortgages, and more Powerball tickets. Deciding how best to focus our efforts so as to both bring our customers the most…

CodeWeavers and CrossOver: An Introduction and Beginnings

Welcome to our first public blog post! We plan to use this blog as a tool to share news tidbits and thoughts that don't fit into formal announcements or press releases.My hope is to share our thinking and plans as they evolve. I also hope that this will help spur folks to write to us to share ideas and thoughts on how we can do a better job. While we try to have a broad range of forums, both general and specific to applications, you should always feel free to write me directly at anytime at jwhite@codeweavers.com.With this first post, I wanted to start with a look back, and share my story and the story of how CodeWeavers began our mission.I have always been a self-confessed computer geek; my passion for programming and computers started as I'd crouch at…
