Depends on your definition of "better". If you are an OS tinkerer, you might like the "free" version of wine. If you are a computer user and don't particularly care about tinkering, you might like CrossOver. Each product has something to be said for it and each product has shortcomings. Because I am more of a user than a tinkerer, I paid for a copy of CrossOver to run 1 particular Windohs application. I saw it as an opportunity to support the wine project and get a sleeker, cleaner, version of wine. As it turns out, the application I want to run runs equally well (although less than perfect) on both Wine and CrossOver. I still like CrossOver for its features and its supported applications list. My wife is a WOW addict and if I can get WOW to run smoothly under Linux, she'll be happy to say "hasta le vista" to the security hole laden bloatware from Redmond, WA.Katyanewb wrote:...so I'm wondering whether it really is better than Wine.
