TransGaming Expands Reselling Program

June 7th, 2006 by Crusader

TransGaming Technologies issued a press release to announce that they are expanding their Cedega reseller program for Linux vendors:

TransGaming’s reseller program is targeted at value-added resellers (VARS) of Linux operating systems or Linux based applications who want to increase their market share and revenues by tapping into the electronic entertainment market. According to NPD, video gaming is among the top three highest used desktop applications. The availability of Cedega as part of a reseller’s portfolio of products will ensure their Linux offering is much more compelling and it will enable competitive differentiation and enhanced customer loyalty.

The deployment of the reseller program is designed to expand TransGaming’s reach into new markets where Linux is growing at rapid rates. “TransGaming’s online subscription model for access to Cedega has been a very effective strategy for TransGaming to-date”, said Vikas Gupta, President and CEO of TransGaming. “We are now focused on broadening our customer base internationally through quality global distribution channels for Linux users. We view our resellers as an essential extension of our sales initiatives and look forward to working closely with our resellers towards deeper market traction for all parties”.

TransGaming is pleased to launch the reseller program with a number of outstanding organizations who are already representing TransGaming and Cedega in a variety of territories. These organizations include Ixsoft and Linux Online Shop in Germany, Amazis.net (operating as Mandriva) in Poland, and Linspire in the United States. As part of the TransGaming reseller program, companies will have access to sales collateral, a dedicated customer service representative, priority technical support, product demonstrations, and much more.

Cedega is a Wine-based API compatibility layer for Windows applications with an emphasis on games.

    Perhaps this explains why the claims that they are working on their web store have suddenly disappeared without a trace.

    Incidentally, I wish they would protect their initial subscription page with https.

    I remember that transgaming said they would open source the code when they got 50.000 paying subscribers.
    I started to subscribe for that reason. But this statement has not been made in a long time, and it can not be found on their current webpage.
    Crooks and liars I’ll tell ya.

    [i]Once 20,000 subscribers are signed up, TransGaming will release all its current code under the Wine license.[/i]

    It’s been over 5 years now since they promised to open source their code at 20,000 subscribers. They don’t publish numbers on how many subscribers they currently have, but I’m going to have to agree with your Crooks and liars statement.

    So much for believing in the Open Source movement.

    That would mean that they care about their subscribers financial information…

    They made the 20,000 subscriber promise before the wine license changed. Once that happened all bets were off.
