CrossOver - The Paid Wine

Check out the supported version of Wine

CrossOver is software that builds on Wine's open source project, which is maintained by a company called CodeWeavers and has some advantages over conventional Wine.

Basically what CodeWeavers does is modify Wine's source code, implementing its own patches, configuration tools and scripting to make it easy to install some tools, and of course the technical support provided.

CrossOver Paid Wine The big difference for me is having technical support, after all, with a little knowledge you can round PlayOnLinux too, if you need help, you can follow our PlayOnLinux manual to take some questions, however, I have to point out that the CrossOver runtime settings are already ready, read "vbrun" and "vcrun" which allows me to install games like CrossFire BR on it, PlayOnLinux thing works harder . Before you get excited about CrossFire, it should be warned that the anti-hack of the game takes CrossOver as a hack and ends up closing the game, something that with a little study maybe you can work around, but I still couldn't.

And how much does CrossOver cost?

As I commented, CrossOver pays and costs about $ 40 for a lifetime license, and of course you can also test Trial version for 15 days. CrossOver also has a version for Mac OSX.
