From the outset it's only fair that not every Windows app can be made to run, and sometimes it's necessary to do a lot of fiddling to get something to come close to running properly. However, for the larger apps--including Microsoft's Office and Adobe's Photoshop everything seems to run fairly smoothly. Games are even more fickle than productivity apps but there's a goodly selection supported by WineX and it makes a fair job of running them at reasonable speed though it's always wise to check before going through the rigours of installation. It's also a fair bet that the very latest games might present you with some serious issues as WineX is a constantly evolving open-source product and subject to constant flux and change. --Chris Russell
