Windows apps on Linux the CrossOver way

My testing showed graphics updates in the standard version were too slow - try a powerpoint 2003 slide with few solid blocks of colour on a slide and see what the refresh time is - yuk!. This can be improved by also installing on the same system ( I am referring to OSX 10.5.4 so crossover for mac) the crossover-games program but still running the apps in crossover - something gets added that speeds up the graphics refresh - still nothing like fast enough for sanity but bearable for simple ppts. I would wait for the WINE graphics update before bothering.
