CrossOver Games

Sounds like magic: $40 software that lets Intel-based Mac and Linux users play Windows games like World of Warcraft, Half-Life 2, and Counterstrike. Here’s the backstory from the developers’ blog. (Via Jesper.)

Update: A bunch of readers have written to say that World of Warcraft runs just fine already as a native Mac app. I have no idea why CrossOver would put it at the top of their compatibility list, either. Update 2: Ah, right, because of Linux.
