Chromium is _not_ a project by codeweavers, it's an open source google project.

http://code.google.com/chromium/

Chrome is googles branded browser which is currently only available
from Google for WIndows.

http://www.google.com/chrome

Codeweavers packaged _chromium_ for windows and wine together.

However there's a native Linux version - which is currently very unstable.

Only if you use the Windows version of chromium under
wine/codeweavers. The native version doesn't.
