TransGaming, makers of WineX, just launched their new Web site and announced “The Linux Gaming Revolution…Powered By TransGaming Technologies.” This revolution appears to consist mostly of the recently-announced Mandrake gamers edition, which includes the “special” version of The Sims. It’s still not very clear if this version of The Sims is a port using Winelib, or some other version packaged with an end-user version of WineX. The new TransGaming site lists November 9th as the shipping date for this new gaming-oriented distro.
The second feature of the TransGaming site is a subscriber section. In this section, subscribers can vote on which features and/or games they want Transgaming to work on next. They can also get support from TransGaming on games that they “officially” support: Starcraft, Alice, and Baldur’s Gate 2 among others.
