Simple but awesome demos of Wine?

As far as games go, off the top of my head there is WoW, and Guildwars.
Battlefield 2/2142 both seem good choice. Counter Strike: Source and COD4
are gold rated. Lastly Crysis is gold rated too. There is an issue with
punkbuster but that only effects online play.

3Dmark06 seems to work to some degree, .

Also it might be interesting to show off, how Wine works with CUDA, . There are some emails on
the mailing list back when I first started working on the wrapper. I think
it shows just how advanced Wine is. Not only can it run a windows program
but with a wrapper it transfers the calls from windows dll to linux .so to
the GPU, with stellar performance.
