    I was a Cedega member for about 4 years. I ended my membership because using Cedega with windows games just never worked liked they did in Windows. If I really wanted to play a game, I resorted to rebooting into XP (to play such games as Portal and Guild Wars).

    At this point, there are too many games for Transgaming to make their translator work properly for.

    If you really want to play Windows games, pony up and get a copy of XP; otherwise, stick to GNU/Linux only games.
