but the real question is what is the differenece between codeweaver
and wine, apart from the support?

You get a nice graphical installer wrapped around Wine, including
multiple bottle support (install applications in different Wine environments),
and some hacky bugfixes for specific apps.

And the rough equivalent of the 1-Click install - called CrossTie.
These make is super easy to install apps/games that are known to work
in Wine by pulling in and installing all the dependencies for you.
Beats trying the Windows app installer, discovering it fails because
of prereq 1, go find, download, and install prereq 1 and try again
only to discover prereq 2 is now needed.... aka dependency hell. To
me... this alone is worth the proverbial "price of admission" for
Crossover.
