Linspire, Inc., developer of CNR.com, an easy-to-use, one-click digital software delivery service for desktop Linux software, and TransGaming, Inc. (TSX-V: TNG), a leading developer of portability and graphics technologies for the electronic entertainment industry, today announced the immediate availability of Cedega 6.0 for Freespire 2.0, Linspire 6.0, Linux Mint 4.0, Ubuntu 7.04, 7.10 and 8.04 (32 bit) desktop Linux users. Available at an introductory price of $44.95 and for download and installation with one-click through CNR.com, Cedega brings the thrill of blockbuster video games to Linux users around the world (http://www.cnr.com/product/transgamingcedega).

"We are excited to offer Cedega at CNR.com as we continue to build our gaming ecosystem for the desktop Linux marketplace," said Larry Kettler, President and CEO of Linspire. "We have a longstanding partnership with TransGaming and look forward to more product offerings in the future."

Cedega enables Linux gamers to play Windows titles on their Linux OS. Triple-A video games such as Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Battlefield 2142, World of WarCraft, Madden 2007, Civilization IV and many more, can be played on Linux using Cedega. This allows an easy, out-of-the-box gaming experience.

Cedega delivers a gaming experience that matches the Windows experience and Copy Protection to Direct3D and Pixel Shaders. Cedega provides the gaming experience along with all the Linux capabilities users have come to rely upon without having to reboot their computer to Windows to play. Cedega's remarkably intuitive GUI enables Linux gamers to do things that are impossible on Windows. With one action, users can set configurations across every game they have installed. Updating, deleting, moving, and even troubleshooting of every game is accessed from a single, easy-to-use interface.

"We are very pleased to be working with Linspire once again," commented Vikas Gupta, CEO & President of TransGaming. "Given how prevalent and important video gaming is as part of the desktop experience, the addition of Cedega to CNR enriches the Linux offering and rounds out the experience for consumers."

If Wine won't run it, Cedega won't be much better. You might as well buy a copy of XP and dual boot for that price.

Cedega is not new and not emulation

**edit**
It's also way less expensive than that site offers it for. Transgaming puts out cedega for $5/month. Is this advertising for some scam site that sells others' software?

Cedega has been around for at least 2 years (and probably a lot longer), plus if you get it off of their site it's only $5 a month.
