Cedega (previously: WineX) – a proprietary software which lets Linux users run native Windows applications and games on Linux host. WineX was renamed to Cedega on June 22, 2004.

Cedega allows many popular Windows games, including Battlefield 2, Half-Life 2, and World of Warcraft to be played under Linux.

Cedega is a proprietary product, that must be purchased for full functionality, and it is a fork of the Wine project, which is available under a free and open source license.

The Cedega software was used by Linux gamers to run Windows games on the Linux platform. The software itself is no longer in use today. It was retired in 2011, a few years after it changed its name to Cedega. Initially, the software was referred to as WineX simply because it was built from the open source software Wine.
