You can take a look at IE's AppDB entry it has all these informations
and even more:

Please don't speak about things that you don't know about. Crossover
office's source code is available for everyone:

Most people working on Wine are paid by Crossover and most patches are
first sent to Wine and then only integrated in Crossover.

The difference between Wine and Crossover is that Crossover has a list
of supported applications and thus accept workarounds and dirty hacks to
make these application work where Wine only accept code that look
correct. You will find that (maybe) more applications work under Wine
than Crossover but that Crossover is more good at making the supported
applications work.
