Wine vs. Cedega in Benchmarks

Hello All,

I have been pondering the thoughts of running every benchmark that I
have on Wine, Cedega, XP, and CX to see where we stack up in the
performance game.

And while doing my daily reading of news sites I came across this posted on /.

Those guys ran 5 game test and Wine's performance is clearly superior
to that of Cedega on benchmarks where Wine was run, they give no
details of the Wine configuration, So I can only presume it's a
default setup. And since there *trying* to paint the best picture
possible for Cedega they don't point out that Wine is superior!

"It is also important to note that there were minimal performance
differences between WINE 0.9.32 and Cedega 6.0. Granted there are only
five benchmarks in this Cedega 6.0 performance preview, but the level
of performance for Cedega does look extremely promising and we will
continue to look at Cedega 6.0 and report back in future articles."

Should read : Cedega's performance is currently lagging that of Wine
0.9.32 and with each Wine release Wine's performance and feature set
is continuously improving!

I'm open for thoughts and suggestions....
