World of Warcraft is probably one of the most popular computer games on the market right now. However, Linux users are not able to use this great piece of gaming software…that is not yet. CodeWeavers is the company responsible for making CrossOver Office and brings many Windows applications into the Linux world. One of the most notable applications that it is compatible with is Microsoft Office 2003.
CodeWeavers said “Recent improvements in Wine have allowed CrossOver to run WoW (World of Warcraft). As a result, we at CodeWeavers have been ‘testing’ that particular application. Extensively. Perhaps too extensively.”
Wine is a free application for Linux that is also produced by CodeWeavers. However, Wine does not support the latest and greatest software like CrossOver Office does. It is definitely promising that they are already testing World of Warcraft out which means that this might not be as far away as you think.
