Nothing To See Here, Move Along

Out of curiosity, I just took a side-trip to the Code-Weavers site to check out their list of supported applications, and came away decidedly non-plussed at the assortment. Particularly in the Games area.

If you need to run a non-game application, I think you'd be better off running a Virtual Machine. That way, you know it works. As for games, there are a few Linux ports available (e.g., Unreal Tournament 2004, Doom3, Quake4, Return to Wolfenstein, and playable Betas of the Serious Sam series, and some of the older games (e.g., Jedi Knight Outcast, Deus Ex) playable inside Wine 1.0.

When it comes right down to it, I don't mind buying an application, but I expect it to do more for me than what's available at no cost (note that I'm avoiding the word "free" here).

YMMV
