The DirectX 11 support coming to CrossOver and Wine will let more Windows games 'just run' on Linux.
The chains are loosening. DirectX still binds many PC games to Windows. Now, CodeWeavers
expects CrossOver to support DirectX 11 by the end of the year, with Wine gaining compatibility shortly afterwards.
In other words, more Windows PC games will “just run” on Linux
, and it’ll be easier for developers to package those games with compatibility code and officially support them on Linux.
