I know the news is kind of fresh but I was wondering if Codeweavers had any preliminary thoughts about how this might affect running CrossOver on upcoming versions of Ubuntu and all of the distributions that are based on it? WINE has made some astounding leaps in functionality in the last six months, in no small part thanks to your contributions, but do you think it's at a point where it can run just as well on 64-bit libraries as it does now on 32?
I've been keeping up with the discussions at discourse.ubuntu.com, and I am under the impression that Ubuntu is moving in the direction of still providing some degree of multiarch support, so as to maintain compatibility with Wine (and thus Crossover and Steam) and some other applications such as printer drivers.
On Sunday, I actually installed another Linux distro on my desktop because I didn't want to lose Wine support, but I quickly discovered that it wasn't as user friendly. Quite relieved, now, although I wonder how the projected use of containers post-Ubuntu 20.04 will affect performance,

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
