For all of you trying to play windows games on osx or even starcraft, if you have a fully driver supported install of osx86, then why not focus on trying to make wine work? treat your system like its a linux flavor. Once you get wine working you open up a ton of possibilities. Personally, im still waiting on nvidia drivers otherwise i would be trying this. But if you have a new ati card or the intel graphics cards, you can start doing this now.

I would pay for an official WineX port to OS X. No doubt in my mind.

Does it support DirectX stuff? I didn't think so...

The people who make WineX have begun supporting the Darwine project, so I think we will eventually see just that!

I'd love to see it. I hope the work comes to something. My own OSx86 installation is fine for office-type tasks but graphics? Forget it...

I have been trying to keep up with the whole Wine/Darwine seen, one of my contacts has been speaking with someone from codeweavers hopefully I will have some interesting information from him.
