Codeweavers will always have one major disadvantage. Windows is ahead of them and will always be so. That's the nature of the beast. If Windows declines in popularity, unfortunately so do windows applications run on codeweavers.

Maybe the critical mass will be when Crossover is able to natively run the .NET Framework. It might sound like blasphemy while Mono may gain more traction, but developers being lazy by default, it would be nice to run a ClickOnce app on Linux or Mac. Currently, there aren't even hoops to jump through for that, ClickOnce just plain does not work yet.
