Codeweavers has released a beta version of their CrossOver Linux which allows Linux fans to play World of Warcraft (WoW). CrossOver Linux Standard beta 2 came out last week and can also play Half-Life 2 and Windows Flash Player 9. The beta is currently available as a free download.
CodeWeavers isn’t the first company that has succeeded in making WoW playable on Linux. Ubuntu Linux fans have been playing WoW for a few months and Transgaming’s Cedega, a competitor to Codeweavers, has been running WoW for about a year.
