"CodeWeavers, Inc., the leading Linux porting company, has announced a private investment deal worth $1.8 million to fund the continued development of its applications which allow users to run Windows software on the Linux operating system."

"CodeWeavers was founded by Jeremy White, who also works extensively with the Wine Project, a consortium of programmers working on a universal "Windows-to-Linux" application that will enable many Windows applications to be run using the Linux operating system."

"This investment will help us take Wine to the next level, and make the transition from Windows to Linux a much less painful one," said Alexandre Julliard, Wine Development Lead at CodeWeavers. "More importantly it shows the recognition and confidence of the investment community in this explosive porting technology -- that speaks volumes."
