Codeweavers, the company behind CrossOver and Wine, has released CrossOver 12.2 for Linux and Mac. CrossOver is an emulation software which easily allows to install and run a countless number of Windows applications on Linux.
The game pioneer and id Software's co-founder John Carmack has already expressed some concerns regarding the viability of Linux as a gaming platform. Now he has published a comment on Twitter, in which he said that improving Wine is a better way for Gaming on Linux than porting games to the OS.
Shortly after releasing CrossOver 12, Codeweavers, the company behind CrossOver and Wine, has released a new version of CrossOver. CrossOver is an emulation software for running Windows applications on Linux. Although Steam for Linux has been in public beta for a while now, a lot of Windows applications will probably not be ported to Linux soon. CrossOver closes this gap and allows you to easily install and use a countless number of applications for Windows on Linux.
