A while back, the software company CodeWeavers said if five things happened, they would offer their software that allows Windows programs to run on Linux or Macs, CrossOver, for free today (10/28/08). Those things have happened. Step up today to download the goods. Since their site is overloaded (surprise!), a streamlined version asks for email addresses and allows the downloading of their software. Cool, free software!
“CrossOver allows you to run Windows applications and games on Mac and Linux. It’s a commercial version of the Wine open-source Windows compatibility layer. Wine provides a Windows API that runs on top of Mac OS X and Linux.”
I can think of a sixth reason why they should do this today: it’s MP’s birthday.
