|| ||Announcing the CodeWeavers Compatibility and Certification Center|
|| ||Tue, 20 Jan 2004 08:32:15 -0500|
We are very excited to announce that today we are launching a major
new initiative for 2004 - the CodeWeavers CrossOver Compatibility
This web based forum is intended to serve as the focal point for all
of the work that we do on CrossOver and Wine over the coming years.
It is our belief that Wine is maturing to the point where it
is possible to make any application work fairly readily. We believe
that the Compatibility Center will let us bring together the
people and tools needed to make Linux a truly Windows compatible
environment. Further, we have defined a new Desktop Linux Certified
program which we believe will allow ISVs to start porting to
the Linux platform with confidence and ease.
The Compatibility Center will allow you to:
* Learn specific details about the state of CrossOver
vis-a-vis your favorite Windows applications.
* Track your applications, and help to see that they
are well supported.
* Provide us with direct feedback so that we can best
select the most needed applications for support
The Certification process will allow a Windows ISV to:
* Assess their application with regards to CrossOver/Wine
* Determine what steps are required to certify their
application for the Linux desktop
* Take simple, cost effective steps to bring their
application the rest of the way to Linux
* Deliver their application to their customers in
a broadly supported, widely deployed environment
that will assure ongoing compatibility with Linux.
By helping ISVs to develop for Linux, we are helping to continue
the snowball of adoption of Linux for the desktop.

Finally, we do recognize that what we are offering and asking
requires a lot of support and interaction with our customers.
All of us at CodeWeavers are deeply appreciative of all the support
you have shown in the past, and we are all looking forward to working
with you to bring your applications to Linux.
Very Best Wishes,
