"A couple weeks back I noticed the Wine-Doors project was down and on their front page they have a message "Very very broken and I don't have time to fix it" So what should users who have been using Wine-Doors, or any of the other closed projects do in the future to configure and run their favorite Windows Applications and Games on Linux or Mac?

"One option is to use Vanilla Wine from winehq and configure and set everything up yourself. This takes some knowledge of how Wine works and some time to test each small change to see if its helping or hurting your Application or Games. You will also need to be familiar with running regedit and editing the user and system registry in Wine.

"Another option that is allot easier for end users and business is to move to CodeWeavers CrossOver for Linux and Mac. Wine-Reviews and CodeWeavers would like at this time to invite all of the past Wine-Doors users to try CrossOver Pro or Games and receive a instant 25% discount off any purchase. To receive the 25% discount just enter "ComeToTheLight" as your special dealcode when you purchase CrossOver."
