This article reports on the launch by TransGaming Technologies in 2005 of the Cedega portability technology for the Linspire desktop Linux operating system. This technology offers game-play experience and performance, making it possible for avid Linux gamers to play titles like Half-Life 2, World of WarCraft and Battlefield 1942 on their machines. The product, which can be downloaded and installed through the click and run software library of Linspire, includes one year of access to Cedega plus regular software updates and membership to TransGaming. Vikas Gupta, president and CEO of TransGaming Technologies, said that the technology helps Linux gamers bridge the gap between the abundance of games on Windows and the versatility of the Linux operating system. Their ongoing relationship with Linspire allows the two companies to play to each others' strengths as leaders in the desktop Linux market and supply customers with the choice they want. TransGaming is committed to continually updating Cedega, offering users the best possible gaming experience. Updates will be available to Linspire subscribers several times per year and frequent releases ensure that the latest titles are available to the Linux community quickly.
